Hillsborough County- Water Department Admin
925 Twiggs St SE
Tampa, FL 33602
Hillsborough County is committed to reducing energy costs and the associated pollution reduction. The Water Department Administration Building is a 25,848 sq ft. three-story office building constructed in 1981 and located in downtown Tampa, FL. On Oct 25th, 2001 the Water Administration building became the 8th facility in the State of Florida to receive the ENERGY STAR® label award. By demonstrating energy performance in the top 25% of the office building market while maintaining indoor environment requirements, thermal performance, and lighting requirements, this is the first County building to achieve the Mark of Excellence in Energy Performance.
In September of 1999 the Tampa Electric Co- Energy Technology Resource Center was contacted to perform an energy audit. The audit completed in November 1999 identified energy efficient measures for air conditioning, building envelope, and lighting. This detailed information was conveyed to the Hillsborough County Architectural Services Department, and a project to renovate and upgrade systems was initiated. The project included: new T8 lighting, new ceilings, ductwork, ceiling grid, carpeting, wall finish, occupancy sensors, and air conditioning distribution modifications.
Education of customers, employees, and vendors on the importance of energy conservation continues. Having obtained recognition for the Water Department Administration building, Hillsborough County looks forward to incorporating additional building space in the ENERGY STAR® program.
