Clifford L. Allenby Building Tour
January 18 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Our January 2023 event was an in-person tour of the state of California’s Clifford L. Allenby Building.
The Clifford L. Allenby Building is expected to use 68% less water than a similarly-sized office building due to its design of low-flow fixtures, 70,000 gallons per year of greywater production, 170,000 gallons of rainwater reuse, and 170,000 gallons of condensate recovery reuse. The building is designed to operate at a EUI of less than 25 kBTU/sf/yr with a high-performance envelope and using radiant heating and cooling systems, a water-source heat pump for heating hot water and DHW, demand-controlled ventilation, energy recovery in the AHUs, and high-efficiency LED lighting.
The building is supplied with solar power through the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) SolarShare program, one of the nation’s most lauded community solar programs. This energy program is part of a first-of-its-kind agreement with SMUD in which DGS’ entire Sacramento portfolio will move to solar power.
