BRIT’s 69,000-square-foot home in Fort Worth’s Cultural District was built on a 5.2-acre site adjacent to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.  The project was designed to be a LEED Platinum certified campus.  The storm water management design was seen by city staff as a case study for future projects in Tarrant County.  The site includes the use of bioretention areas, a wet pond that collects rainwater and includes a pump system to power the irrigation from the pond, infiltration trenches, a green roof on approximately half of the building, grass channels and filter strips.  The BRIT project recently earned top honors in DFW at the Topping Out industry awards.  The architects for the facility are H3 and Corgan Architects.
