Please join us on Wednesday evening, October 26th beginning at 5:45pm for the final 4th Wednesday Design Dialogue (4WDD) of the year. This month’s presentation will explore the concepts of ‘Net-Zero Energy Building/Campus Design’ through the strategies employed on the SMUD East Campus Operations Center (the “EC-OC”).
The EC-OC is the latest in an ongoing series of efforts by SMUD – the country’s sixth largest public utility – to utilize energy efficient building strategies to serve its roughly 1.4 million customers.
In order to streamline their operational needs and provide centralized location for offices, workshops, storage areas, and parking for both employees and service vehicles, SMUD is developing the EC-OC on a new 51 acre site at the southeast corner of Bradshaw Road and Kiefer Boulevard in Sacramento County.
The design/build team will deliver what is slated to become the nation’s largest, most sustainable fleet operations campus. Planned for completion in 2013, the new facility will be a Net Zero Energy campus, meaning the campus will generate as much on-site renewable energy as its facilities will consume. The project is targeting LEED Platinum.
Construction is currently underway with site grading and foundations.
AIA credits available.
