Sustainable Design Guidelines to Support the Washington State Ferries Terminal Design Manual: Design Guideline Application and Refinement

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:

  1. Cite example WSF terminal projects that would serve as candidates for assessing the Sustainable Design Guidelines,
  2. Compile and analyze site and resource attributes influencing the design needs,
  3. Develop a “20% design” for each of the example terminals,
  4. Refine the Draft Sustainable Design Guideline,
  5. Develop preliminary data on the efficacy of sample stormwater design solutions,
  6. 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.
