Post Falls City Hall
With the completion of the 42,000 square foot Post Falls City Hall, the local government became centralized under one roof, with all departments sharing one building instead of being scattered across five separate facilities. As Post Falls is one of the fastest growing cities in Idaho, room for growth was programmed into each department’s space within city hall, as well as seating for up to 125 in the new Council Chambers. City hall now features six conference rooms, opposed to the single room found in the old building.
In the spirit of efficiency found in centralizing city hall, the Post Falls government wanted an energy efficient building to accompany its workers. Originally intending to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification, this element of the design fell through. However, LTA still provided a high performance, energy efficient building. Using daylighting, an energy efficient heat pump, low VOC materials, native plants and materials, low flow plumbing fixtures, a heat reflective roof, high performance glass, and lighting controls, Post Falls City Hall remains as an example of LTA’s and local government’s commitment to the environment.
