CSU Chico Gateway Science Museum

Project Details

Location: Chico, CA

Square Feet: 9,800

Delivery: Design/Build

Categories: Education, Sustainable Projects

Project Description

This building reflects the University’s commitment to sustainable design to both students and the community. Some examples of sustainable building measures include the following: a storm water collection and biofiltration system that will be exhibited in an outdoor “Delta” retention pond, a pervious concrete parking lot, mechanical and electrical systems which optimize energy performance well in excess of Title 24, a construction waste management plan which diverts construction waste from the landfill, water efficient landscaping, and the use of recycled materials exceeding at or above 5% of aggregate material value. The Gateway Science Museum project included a complex mechanical system. Components included dual-duct air terminal units, condensing boilers, evaporatively cooled chillers, indoor air handling units, electric evaporative steam humidification system, close-coupled in-line centrifugal pumps, gas fired equipment, refrigerant piping, hydronic piping, hydronic specialties, split systems heat pumps, roof mounted and in-line centrifugal fans, fan drives, dampers, and specialty gas vents.

CA State Lottery Headquarters

CA State Lottery Headquarters

Project Details

Location: Sacramento, CA

Square Feet: 155,000

Delivery: Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)

Categories: Sustainable Projects, Corporate Complexes

Project Description

The CA Lottery building was designed to promote a number of construction and design practices to increase profitability while reducing negative environmental impacts. Completed in July 2011, the project achieved LEED Gold Certification by the USGBC through a number of sustainable features. These include: Vegetated Roof System which accounts for water conservation, solar heat gain and reduction in urban heat islands; Photovoltaics – generating electric power by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into electricity; Ice Storage – through this method, we reduced cooling costs between 30-40%, while reducing peak demands on utilities; Automatic Window Coverings – they adjust to sun and heat; Materials and Resources – during construction we achieved a high recycled content in construction materials.
