From Church to School
A 1970s-era church was given a new
purpose as a school. This unusual adaptive
reuse of Hillcrest Presbyterian Church
prompted an innovative solution that
achieved stellar results. Although using
VRF plus DOAS isn’t common in Seattle,
it saved Westside School 70% in energy
compared to its old building.
Bringing in the Light
435 Indio Way
A lot of 1970s-era office buildings are cold concrete
boxes that seem to repel light. One of these buildings
in Sunnyvale, Calif., was particularly dark, derelict,
and impossible to rent. To make this building rentable,
the developer decided that a net zero energy renovation
could be sustainable and profitable.
Net Zero and Mission Critical
Cincinnati District 3 Police HQ
Most net zero buildings aren’t open around the clock, 365 days
a year. But, a police headquarters building in Cincinnati never
shuts its doors, and yet, is net positive in its first year of operation. A photovoltaic array and 40 geowells help it stay on target
with its energy goals.
Fuels AHR Expo
The changing landscape of sustainable
buildings requires innovative solutions.
AHR Expo meets these needs with thousands of products, nearly 50 educational
sessions, and networking one-on-one
