SeQuential Biofuels EcoFueling Station

The first retail biofuel station in the United States.

As a project manager with Habitats Inc, Heather Flint Chatto managed the team of consultants, led the LEED planning charrette for an integrated design process, and managed the permitting for this innovative flagship fueling station. The project received the 2008 SW Oregon AIA Colleagues Choice Award.

Located on an existing brownfield, the project helped to clean up contaminated soil and demonstrate innovative design. Notable features include extensive solar arrays above the fueling islands, a naturally daylit retail store, on-site stormwater management through a vegetated roof and bioswales, and interpretive educational signage. 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.
