Event Details

Tarrant County Southeast Subcourthouse in ArlingtonTARRANT COUNTY, TEXAS – Tarrant County is leading the way in Texas with design and construction of its new LEED Silver Certified Subcourthouse in Arlington. This North Central Texas public entity is at the forefront of the green building movement currently sweeping the nation. With a solid commitment to sustainable design, Tarrant County is seeking to be a good steward to the community by reducing its environmental impact one building at a time.

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), Fort Worth will be hosting a tour of the new facility from 5pm - 7pm on Earth Day, April 22, 2010 along with a reception. Tours will include an Architect led tour by LBL Architects at 5:15pm, a Construction led tour by Steele & Freeman at 5:45 , an MEP led tour by Baird, Hampton & Brown, Inc. at 6:00 and a Sustainability led tour by Green Building Services and Universal Commissioning Group (UCxG) at 6:15 .

On September 22, 2009, David Phillips, Tarrant County Director of Facilities Management, and Tracy Pelle, Project Manager with Tarrant County, presented a plaque from the U.S. Green Building Council to County Commissioner Marti VanRavenswaay and the Commissioners Court commemorating the project’s achievement of the LEED SILVER Certification. Of the points pursued during the certification process, the courthouse received all 36 points it was seeking. Of note, it is the first courthouse in Texas to receive LEED certification, the first LEED building for Tarrant County, and the first LEED building in Arlington.

The new Subcourthouse is a 56,000-square-foot, three-story facility situated in the heart of revitalized downtown Arlington, Texas. It replaces a 30-year-old building that had outgrown both the community and the building’s occupants. The new building includes the county commissioner’s office, tax office, Justice of the Peace, county clerk, district clerk, and constable’s office. It also includes a large public meeting room that can be used for early voting, community meetings, and presentations. The building was designed to help alleviate long lines and provide faster service for residents who need to pay property taxes, renew license plates, or take advantage of other county services.
