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 earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010 devastated the country and left many children orphans. Price is proud to be a part of the U.S. Green Building Council’s project to build Haiti’s first LEED Orphanage & Children’s Center.
Price’s Winder, Georgia Plant Manager, Steve Bittle, has had two opportunities to travel to Haiti since the earthquake. In the video below, he talks about his experiences and what Project Haiti means for the orphaned children in Haiti.
