  44. 44. Sustainability
  45. 45. We pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of sustainability: • Cotati Police Facility – One of the first LEED® certified Public Safety project in the United States. • Uptown Monterey Retail – First LEED® certified retail center in the State of California. • Our company policy is all Mechanical and Electrical design team members must become LEED® AP (LEED® AP+). • We have designed 17 projects that have or are in the process of achieving LEED® and/or CHPS certification. Sustainability

  47. 47. Thermal Energy Storage Full Storage Partial Storage Demand Limiting Sustainability
  48. 48. Evaporative Condensing Air Conditioning • Cost effective energy efficiency. Typically, add $1,000 per ton. • Can be installed in a standard packaged rooftop unit system. • Up to 13.5 EER. (Title 24 min. is 10.8 EER for this type of system.) • Available for both constant volume and variable volume mechanical systems. Sustainability
  49. 49. Daylight Harvesting • Adjusting the output of electric lighting in a daylight area adjacent to a window or skylight via a daylight photo sensor that detects light levels in the space that can turn lighting ON/OFF or dimming control. • The light level is the user-defined day-light level that must be reached before the lights are turned on/off or dimming is turned up or down. Sustainability
  50. 50. Occupancy Based Lighting Control • Switching lighting on and off in response to the occupancy of a particular space via occupancy sensors that respond to the individual usage of a controlled space are effective at eliminating energy waste. Occupancy sensor types include: o Passive Infrared Technology (PIR) o Ultrasonic Technology o Dual Technology combines the best of both PIR and ultrasonic technologies • Scheduling control manages lighting according to time schedules based on when buildings are open/occupied and closed/unoccupied via a master lighting control system panel that automatically turns all lighting on/off with the exception of emergency lighting. Sustainability
  51. 51. Classroom Lighting Integrated Classroom Lighting System (ICLS) • Achieve classroom lighting requirements • Achieve maximum energy performance points • Easily integrated daylight harvesting strategies • In the “General Mode”, it provides recommended light levels and illuminates ceilings and walls (using the ceiling suspended direct/indirect lighting) • In the “A/V Mode”, it ensures presentations are clearly visible while providing enough light for proper classroom communications • In the “Focus Mode”, light can focus attention. A/V Mode combined with the whiteboard light fixture results in a calming environment where attention is focused on the whiteboard Sustainability
  52. 52. High Efficiency Lighting • T5 and T5HO fluorescent lamps produce the same amount of light using 28 watts as a 32 watt T8. They have an average life of 20,000 hrs, compared to 24,000 hrs for the T8. • LED light fixtures produce more light per watt than incandescent bulbs. They have an average life of 50,000 hrs, compared to 10,000 to 24,000 hrs for fluorescent lamps. Using 60% less energy, they are available for indoor and outdoor applications. • Induction lighting are similar to conventional fluorescent lamps. They have an average life of 100,000 hrs, which is 11.4 years of continuous operation or 22.8 years of day or night use. They are primarily used where replacement costs are high. Sustainability
