The ClimateWorks Foundation’s office is the highest-scoring LEED for Commercial Interiors project in California. With a score of 47, there are just two higher scoring LEED for Commercial Interiors projects in the world.

The 15,000 square foot tenant improvement space is in the historic Russ Building. All HVAC equipment was removed; the only supplemental cooling is in the server room – cooling is provided via the building’s operable windows, ceiling fans, and private office clerestories. The office has abundant daylighting through use of full-height glazing.

Come tour the project and learn why this LEED project is so unique!

Hey everyone

Due to the fact that we have not met in a few weeks the times have been changed and we have decided to double up on the chapters that will be reviewed weekly.  We will now be meeting on WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY at NOON in room 225.  This week we will be reviewing chapters 2 (on wed) and 3 (on fri).

Thanks and look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday!

Summary of the “Green Factors”:

-Several GigaCrete™ products can be made with recycled waste material such as bottom ash, fly ash, sludge, or dredged materials. And, these waste material fillers can comprise up to 80% (by volume) of GigaCrete™ products. Usage of such waste materials reduces the amount of these byproducts going to landfills or other waste storage sites.

– Less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are produced from the manufacture of the GigaCrete™ cement binder than compared to the manufacture of Portland cement.

– Energy savings can be achieved with the GigaCrete™ PanelSystem due to the high thermal efficiency and insulating value of the panel material. According to the “Structural Insulated Panel Association in Partnership with Oakridge National Labs,” structural paneled homes can achieve energy savings of up to 70%.

– The GigaCrete™ cement binder is 100% nontoxic.

– GigaCrete™ products use approximately two-thirds less water than conventional Portland-based cement products.

– High resistance to mold, mildew, insects, and vermin facilitates cleaner living environments.

– Reduction of waste materials is achieved due to efficient manufacturing methods and a building system design that reduces “on-the-job” waste.

All GigaCrete™ ash-based products are totally noncombustible and all GigaCrete™ sand-based products will not support flame – thereby reducing the potential for hazardous off-gases associated with structure fires.

– Eco Friendly StuccoMax-E (environmental) contains 80% (by volume) recycled bottom ash filler material – and is the only stucco product on the market that utilizes bottom ash in such high content.

– Eco Friendly GigaFoam utilizes 100% waste ash as a filler material and is the only waste ash foam on the market.

Sustainability is one of AIA’s top priorities and climate change is everyone’s concern, crossing state and regional boundaries. This conference will seek to benchmark how we are doing at meeting the Architecture 2030 goals and what still needs to be done. Legislation, Codes/Metrics, Planning, Buildings, and Tectonics are among the tracks to be covered.

Speakers, Sponsors, and Exhibitors are being organized now, interested in being a part of ECG –

In conjunction with East Coast Green, we are proud to co-host the AIA-NJ annual Design Conference. Projects will be selected in categories from residential to historic preservation. For the second year there will also be a category for best Sustainable project.

Extend your visit another day, and take part in a series of all day USGBC-NJ LEED pre-conference workshops.
