Achieving Efficiencies With Simple Technologies
Wednesday, Jan 27, 2010
Don't miss this event, the second in a four-part series Green Building Solutions: What's Working? It's a showcase of current green building technologies and a forum on case studies of building design and construction incorporating these technologies as well as lessons learned by leaders in the field. Technologies to be covered in the series will include energy efficiency measures, renewable energy generation, water efficiency and reuse, waste reduction, the use of environmentally responsible materials and integrated design processes.
On January 27th, speakers will highlight two examples of innovative design processes resulting in cost-effective energy efficient solutions. Baldor Specialty Foods recently moved into a larger refrigerated warehouse with increased cooling load, but the energy use remained the same due to improvements in mechanical, lighting and building envelope system. In planning the new Maurice J. Gallagher Jr. Hall on the U.C. Davis campus, Sasaki, the A&E for the project, took a holistic approach to sustainability to develop a low-energy and low-water use office building and conference center. Leading the discussion is Bert Gregory who has led his firm to be nationally recognized for concept-based, environmentally intelligent design
