Sacramento VA Medical Center Medical Office Building (VA Mather)

Capital provided energy modeling to support LEED criteria for this new 16,000 SF Medical Office Building at the VA Mather campus.

Collaborating with the design team Capital proposed energy conservation measures which explored possible alternative envelope, HVAC, and lighting measures in order to identify the optimum methods and materials for improving LEED energy score. Options considered construction material variables, glazing variables including SHGC, window shades, and glazing area, lighting power density and HVAC energy efficiency improvements.

Capital compiled a Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) of Energy Conservation Measure (ECM) Options. This is a series of calculations using: construction cost, maintenance and energy cost that yields the overall value ranking of 3 potential HVAC system types. Capital also completed all LEED Energy Modeling Templates and addressed LEED review comments.
