Designed and constructed in multiple phases, the Austin City Hall project was the result of an elaborate collaboration and complex team structure including Antoine Predock as the Design Architect and Cotera + Reed Architects as the Architect of Record. In addition to the multiple project managers representing the City of Austin, there were approximately 15-20 sub consultants on the design team. The overall project included excavation, design and construction of the underground parking garage and the final phase of the building and plaza. The building and plaza received LEED Gold Certification from the USGBC in 2006.
The early programming effort identified multiple site constraints and challenges for the design team. As part of a six-block master plan, the Austin City Hall needed to address the needs and wants of adjacent properties as well as fulfilling the programmatic requirements. Some of the spaces housed in the City Hall include the Law Department, Budget and Finance, City Manager’s Office, Mayor’s Office, Public Information Office, City Clerk’s Office, Council Chambers, Board and Commissions, Meeting Areas.
Deb’s role on the project was multi-faceted and included Project Manager, Construction Administration, and Sustainability Coordinator for Cotera + Reed.
