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.
