Municipal and Government 

East Harding Construction has special expertise constructing police stations and criminal justice facilities as well as Public Libraries and Community Outreach Facilities.

We have productive relationships with a number of municipalities in Arkansas — including the cities of Little Rock, Pine Bluff and El Dorado — and multiple counties — including Pulaski, Saline, Jefferson, Benton and Phillips.

 

City of Little Rock

12th Street Station
 

The new construction of a 44,000 sf, 2-story, multipurpose facility that houses the Little Rock Police Department (LRPD) major crimes and patrol divisions, a public atrium and a public-accessible area to be leased or used for commercial or retail functions not affiliated with the LRPD achieved USGBC LEED Silver.

 

LEED Silver Certification included:
A 35% reduction of potable water due to efficient faucet and toilet facilities, a 76% reduction of potable water used for irrigation & a 13% energy efficiency improvement over the baseline model.

 

All energy systems and building envelope underwent fundamental and enhanced commissioning, preventing excessive use of energy and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

 

22% of materials used contained recycled content, 31% of materials were manufactured within 500 miles of project site; 100% of interior paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants & flooring contained minimal or no volatile organic content, 95% of occupants can adjust their own lighting and 62% can adjust their thermal comfort while all multi-occupant spaces can adjust both.

Benton County Courthouse

Built in 1928, Benton County received a grant from the Walton Family Foundation to renovate the interior and exterior of the Courthouse.  The renovation of the Courthouse consisted of an extensive exterior envelope renovation, including related site work, waterproofing, and new windows, maintaining the original facade.

 

The first floor of the courthouse received a complete renovation including mechanical/electrical/data.

 

All of this was accomplished while the Courthouse was operating.

Pulaski County Criminal Justice Building

East Harding Construction was selected to provide construction management services for the renovation of the existing Hardin & Grace Building (21,000 sf) and an addition of 9,000 sf for additional offices and support space.

 

Specifics for USGBC LEED Certification included:

Reducing the “heat island” around the building by taking out the asphalt and replacing it with a green band of landscaping, using pervious pavement and vegetated bioswales to decrease runoff, improve water quality, and supply water for the landscaping, replacing the old mechanical systems with more efficient heating and cooling equipment, using low volatile organic compound materials in the renovation and new construction that reduces off-gassing and improves the indoor air quality, using light color for solar reflectance on the roof, using occupancy sensors on light fixtures, using energy-saving fixtures throughout and using the energy-saving solar orientation for the new addition (entrances faces north).

Recycle all construction waste, use local material suppliers to save on shipping; use recycled and recyclable materials, whenever possible.

Pine Bluff Main Library

The new 32,000 square foot library will be built from the ground up. It will include an outdoor venue, coffee shops, a teaching kitchen, maker stations, a story/lecture stair, multi-purpose meeting rooms, executive board rooms, a computer lab, a teen loft, recording studios, a microfiche area & a rare books section.

 

The modern design will use natural light throughout to help reduce operational costs and lessen the facilities carbon footprint. The landscaping and outdoor areas will provide a tranquil retreat with plenty of fresh air to relax and rejuvenate while expanding the mind and imagination.

Central Arkansas Library System

Bobby L. Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art
 

This project, constructed as the Arkansas Studies Institute, houses Arkansas-related books, manuscripts, photographs, audio and UALR’s Ottenheimer’s Archives and Special Collections …10 million manuscripts and 46,000 books, including the most extensive collection of Arkansas governors’ official papers, including Governors Jim Guy Tucker, Bill Clinton, Frank White, Dale Bumpers, Winthrop Rockefeller, Carl Bailey, Thomas McRae, and George Donaghey.  The building is also home to the Clinton School of Public Service; the Arkansas Humanities Council; the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies; Central Arkansas Library System Art Galleries; Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture; UALR Archives and Special Collections; and the UALR Urban Policy Forum.

 

The Geyer & Adams Building (built in 1914 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and the Budget Office Building (built in 1883 of heavy timber) in downtown Little Rock were renovated, and a 20,000 square foot addition made of steel and glass construction now comprise the 68,000 square foot building  that represents three centuries of construction.  The exterior is designed with seven fin-shaped frosted-glass panels that resemble pages of a book.  The fins  block the heat but also let the light through.  The fins protect the archives from direct sunlight.  The bottom panel of each fin features a historic image of Arkansas.
