Project Description

Nichols, Melburg & Rossetto was the associate architect, working with Form 4 Architects on all phases of the project. We were responsible for design negotiations with the City of Redding Planning Division and day-to-day construction administration, coordinating design team responses to questions that arose during construction. We integrated energy efficient design principles into the design, so that the building could recieve LEED Silver certification (the Owner decided to not pursue formal certification). Cooling of the building is provided by thermal energy storage (TES) tanks and chillers (ice is made at night, which is used to cool the building during the day) on the roof top. Daylight sensors automatically adjust the light levels at the building perimeter, and long overhangs provide shading of the building envelope.
