From HVAC and lighting controls to secondary windows, there are many solutions for an efficient commercial building. Knowing how to integrate those solutions so they work together in an energy-efficient system may mean saving time and money. Whether it’s a retrofit or new commercial project, learn how to apply an integrated design.
The South Landing Development: A Bold Vision for a Sustainable Future
The South Landing development in Spokane, Wash., began with a bold vision from Avista’s Chairman and then CEO Scott Morris. When Morris learned the University District Gateway Bridge would land on Avista’s property, he knew it was a golden opportunity to create what he envisioned as “the five smartest blocks in the world.”Case Studies
The South Landing Eco-District: Sharing Energy and Information
The South Landing development in Spokane, Wash., demonstrates how utility and building operators can work together to create transformative new models for energy, the built environment, and sustainability that reduce energy demand and increase energy efficiency.
The South Landing Development: A Clean, Reliable and Affordable Energy Future
The South Landing development serves as the latest example of Avista’s commitment to serve its customers across eastern Washington, northern Idaho and southern Oregon with a carbon-neutral supply of electricity by the end of 2027, and carbon-free electricity by 2045.
The South Landing Development: Ambitious Reductions in Carbon and Energy Use
With ambitious goals to provide a new model for efficiency, sustainable developments, and energy innovation, the South Landing development’s design team pursued both zero-energy and zero-carbon certifications from International Living Future Institute (ILFI) for the Catalyst building.
The South Landing Development: Inspiring Tenant Engagement
The actions of building occupants can impact how building systems run, especially if they are adapting to their environments in ways that negatively impact the overall building performance. The Catalyst building at the South Landing development in Spokane developed a tenant engagement program that encourages occupants to participate in positive energy behaviors by using energy-efficient strategies.
Advanced lighting starts with control. Discover how commercial building lighting design and modern technologies can combine to affect your budget, market differentiation, aesthetics, and tenant comfort.
LLLC: The Future of Efficient Lighting
Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) take energy efficient LEDs to the next level by applying control. With lighting control, owners and managers can tailor lighting systems to maximize energy use, optimize tenant comfort, and integrate additional building energy efficient systems for overall improved operational performance.
Better comfort and energy costs start with the right HVAC. Understand how heating, cooling and airflow all directly contribute to the energy efficiency and tenant comfort of your commercial building.
Very High Efficiency Dedicated Outside Air Systems
Dedicated outside air systems (DOAS) separate heating and cooling from the ventilation system to allow for optimal control of each of these critical building functions. Building on the DOAS concept, a very high efficiency DOAS includes heat recovery ventilation and focuses on increased equipment efficiency and optimized system design. When compared to a code-minimum system upgrade, very high efficiency DOAS can reduce commercial building energy use by an average of 36%, and HVAC energy use by an average of 65%.
