The civic center design planned for the Town of Atherton, in the PAEC region, calls for replacing buildings near the end of their useful life to maximize use and provide an efficient functioning town government. The project will demonstrate how time-tested sustainability strategies combined with innovative, cutting-edge technologies result in the highest resource efficiency and cost benefit.
The campus design demonstrates key sustainability strategies that are cost-effective, educational, and beautiful, resulting in material, energy, and water demand reduction, as well as improved resource use, comfort, and well-being. The design analysis prioritized the key focus areas of carbon reduction, energy-water nexus, and ecosystem value.
The purpose of this study was to identify key sustainable strategies that assist in lowering resource demand, inclusive of energy, water, material, and carbon. The study identified feasible, scalable, and regional strategies that can be easily replicated, while serving as an educational tool for the broader community.
