Sustainability case study
This award-winning, $185 million design-build project was built for the Department of General Services in downtown Sacramento. The 78,000-SF Central Plant provides cooling, heating and control air to 23 state-owned buildings in the Capitol Area. The new plant serves over 5.5 million-SF of office space and replaces a less efficient plant, which struggled to meet increasing demands for heating and cooling. This project is LEED Platinum certified and contains state-of-the-art equipment that enhances efficiency and reliability.
Energy use was decreased by 58 percent thanks to variable frequency drives and rooftop solar. To avoid discharge into the river, the cooling tower installed by Skanska recycles water between four to six times before it is reused onsite for irrigation and non-potable water needs. Over 90 percent of construction waste was diverted from landfills, and 42 percent of all materials used on the project were manufactured within 500 miles.
