Presentation and Renderings

December 7, 2007 - At a public meeting last night, the City of Knoxville announced that the new Knoxville Transit Center would be a certified green building. The transit center design team is attempting to achieve Silver certification for the project through the US Green Building Council’s LEED for New Construction program by designing for excellence in five categories of construction:

  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy & Atmosphere
  • Materials & Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality

    Additional air quality mitigation measures are to be designed into KAT’s operational plan for the new Transit Center. A GPS-based Automatic Vehicle Locator system will reduce the idle-time of buses, and the buses themselves will be equipped with state-of-the-art pollution control equipment.

    The initial design and architectural renderings for the new transit station can be seen on the City’s website at http://www.cityofknoxville.org/transit/120607.asp.
