The Sustainable Design Guidelines were developed in Phase I of this research program (WA-RD 816.1). Here we are reporting on the Phase II effort that “beta-tested” the Phase I Guidelines on example ferry terminal designs and refinements made to the tool. The specific objectives of this project are to:
- Cite example WSF terminal projects that would serve as candidates for assessing the Sustainable Design Guidelines,
- Compile and analyze site and resource attributes influencing the design needs,
- Develop a “20% design” for each of the example terminals,
- Refine the Draft Sustainable Design Guideline,
- Develop preliminary data on the efficacy of sample stormwater design solutions,
- Develop a database tool for GRIP, the proposed Green Rating Integration Platform for WSF.
This project represents the second phase in a three-part effort. The final component will develop and potentially demonstrate specific solutions that present unique opportunities and will be deployed in Phase III.
