SQ Fuels

This new fuel station sought to clean the existing brownfield while providing innovative features such as extensive solar arrays above fuel islands, a naturally daylit convenience store and site stormwater management through a vegetated roof and bioswales. Habitats scope of work included site design and planning, permitting with five separate agencies, coordination of eight project partners at county, state and federal levels, grant and LEED research, design of the vegetated roof, landscape and stormwater features, and the installation, planting and maintenance of the vegetated roof. The project was the first retail biofuel station in the United States and received the SW Oregon AIA Colleagues Choice Award in 2008.
