CATEGORY: ADAPTIVE REUSE
PROJECT: MEP, Fire Protection, Energy Modeling Services
SQUARE FOOTAGE: 12,000 SFT
LOCATION: 120 8th Street, San Francisco
We provided the MEP engineering and Sustainable Consulting Services for this modular construction home.
The design consists of radiant floor heating and passive cooling via a thermally massive slab and nighttime cross ventilation. Spot cooling is provided in the office via an efficient variable refrigerant split system.
The offsite fabricating minimized site disturbance and maximized construction quality control. The project targeted a high level of environmental performance, and energy modeling software was used to optimize passive cooling and heating strategies for the residence.
