Transportation Services Center 

university of washington

This new 2-story, 12,000 sf Transportation Center consists of new offices and a public lobby for the University's Transportation Services department. The facility consolidates six departments previously spread across campus to meet their evolving needs.

Rolluda Architects was selected to review and revise the existing program prior to design. Focusing on the current and future needs of the organization, workshops were conducted with the various user groups and a new program was created. The goals for the project were incorporated into the design—flexible offices, adaptability, and sustainability.

Energy-efficient HVAC systems, natural light and ventilation, exterior sun shades and options for modular, moveable walls and furniture were integrated, as well as sustainable site elements. LEED principles were incorporated from the beginning of the process in order to meet the University’s goal for achieving a LEED-CI Platinum rating. The project received this rating and was certified in 2012, the first campus project to achieve this.
