Mercedes-Benz Stadium Awarded LEED Platinum

Earning 88 out of a potential 110 points, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the first sports arena to achieve the LEED Platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. The stadium incorporates several green infrastructure and sustainable design elements such as utilizing a 120-foot long cistern capable of holding up to 680,000 gallons of rainwater collected from the roof. The runoff is used to irrigate the vegetation around the building, and by storing so much of it, flooding will be mitigated in the low-lying nearby neighborhoods. More stadiums are following in the footsteps of Mercedes-Benz by including translucent coatings on windows to reduce the amount of sunlight shining in cutting the amount of air conditioning needed, and installing solar panels, LED lighting, dehumidifiers and composters.

Long Engineering, Inc. is proud to have served on one of the most iconic high-profile projects in the City of Atlanta. Our civil engineering services included demolition plans for the existing site and removal of the Georgia Dome, land development design for the new stadium, infrastructure and utility improvements for the site and stadium, water quality improvements, land surveying services, pedestrian circulation and access improvements, and construction period services. LONG played a vital part in the permitting process, pulling 4 permits for phased construction documents through the City of Atlanta for this fast-track project. As a result, they were able to reduce unnecessary delays and construction costs as well as ensure that timelines were met.
