Atherton Civic Center report

Peninsula Advanced Energy Community

Emergency Operations Center and City Hall for Atherton’s new Civic Center

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.
