The California Independent System Operator (California ISO) treated the design of its new headquarters in Folsom, CA as an opportunity to demonstrate strong energy leadership. The corporation – which manages the power grid of 30 million people – wanted to achieve 25% less energy usage than outlined in California’s Title 24 standard, and targeted LEED certification as a benchmark.
Because of the building’s diverse functional areas, a Price Displacement Ventilation system was used in conjunction with underfloor air distribution. This solution provided a comfortable, flexible and aesthetically pleasing work environment.
The video below outlines the design process of the new headquarters, and shows how Price’s hybrid solution helped California ISO exceed its energy performance goals.
The revitalization of San Francisco International Airport’s Terminal 2 (SFO T2) included a redesign that set out to redefine the passenger experience and provide airport travelers with a distinctly “San Francisco” flavor. Very influential in this redesign were the goals of reducing the terminal’s environmental footprint and achieving LEED Gold Certification – both of which were achieved through the inclusion of various sustainable products and practices.
Price Displacement Ventilation was selected to condition the space for its ability to meet the energy efficiency and comfort goals of the customer while also seamlessly integrating into the architect’s design. Because of this innovative technology, airline travelers arriving to and departing from San Francisco now enjoy a more comfortable environment with excellent air quality.
The following video discusses the requirements and challenges of the project, and explores why Price Displacement Ventilation was the ideal solution for SFO T2.
A school’s air distribution system is a key component in creating a safe, comfortable learning environment for students. In undertaking a cafeteria renovation and commons area addition, Ogden High School in Utah took this into account and incorporated Price Active Beams into the project.
The following video explores the project and the reasons why Price Active Beams were the ideal choice for Ogden High School. Enjoy!
It’s Friday already (the weeks seem to fly by here at the office) and I hope you all have great weekends lined up. For our friends, colleagues, and customers in the states – I hope you all have enjoyed your Thanksgivings and that you get to spend lots of time with family (or shopping all the Black Friday sales!).
Today’s post is our very first video blog! I think we are really starting off with a bang! We had a team of experts in from Germany to do some product testing at Price Research Center North. The team in the lab set up our cold room so that a huge glass window wall could be tested with -30 degree temperatures. The test was part of the development/construction of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which is an amazing building not only for the historic value it will have inside, but for its architecture and design:
A major challenge for the team building this new Winnipeg landmark is making sure that the glass walls can withstand a regular room temperature on one side, and -30 degree temperatures on the other side without having any problems (like condensation, frost, etc.). That’s where Price comes in! Check out the video below for more details on how we rigged up the huge glass wall!
