Sustainability

 

The project design was conceived with sustainability instilled into every design and execution decision. Our early assessment of the LEED Scorecard suggests that the project could attain a LEED Gold or better rating, which is only possible by utilizing a thorough, wide-ranging scope of sustainable principles throughout the design and construction process. Highlights of our sustainability program are as follows:

  • Climatically Responsive.
  • Tuned envelope to enhance daylighting and views.
  • UFAD for flexibility, comfort and 16% HVAC Energy Savings.
  • More than 20% better than Title 24.
  • 1,004 kW of PV to offset 25% of electric consumption on an average sunny day.
  • LEED Gold or better for City Hall and Library buildings.
  • LEED Gold or better for the Port Headquarters building.
  • More than 50% reduction in Carbon Footprint as compared to our baseline.
