David Brower Center Is a Green Non-Profit Community Hub
Sustainable building strategies are plentiful, and overall the building is expected to use 60-80% less energy than a typical office building of its size. Included in the building’s design is a solar photovoltaic system that doubles as a sun shade, rainwater collection, use of recycled materials, non-toxic and healthy materials, solar passive design, high-efficiency lighting, natural ventilation, CO2 sensors, 100% daylighting for all offices, and more. The center also has a unique web-based dashboard for the public and tenants to monitor various data feeds, like solar power output, energy use, water use, and natural gas use.
The design team for the David Brower Center includes a large group of building experts, including San Francisco-based Daniel Solomon of Solomon ETC-WRT as the principal architect, Loisos and Ubbelohde, Tipping Mar + associates for structural engineering, and Equity Community Builders as the developer.
