Hohbach-Lewin, Inc. projects awarded USGBC LEED Certification:
Sequoia High School New Gymnasium
With its highly visible location on the south side of the historic Sequoia High School Campus, this Cody Anderson Wasney designed project is designed to seat the entire 1400 person student body.
LEED points were achieved through a combination of implementation of sustainable building practices including the use of non-toxic materials for ceilings and flooring, zero tolerance for PVC components, energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems, extensive natural day lighting, the use of indigenous plants in landscaping. Rooftop photovoltaics will generate 53% of the building’s peak energy consumption; the central skylight monitor will provide 70% of the daytime lighting requirements. High slag content concrete and masonry was specified. As much as practical, high recyclable content and locally produced materials were specified.
The project was awarded LEED PLATINUM status.
Slocum Center for Orthopedic and Sports Medicine
This four-story steel framed medical office building with ambulatory surgery facilities has an HVAC system that relies on an innovative, sub-grade geothermal heat transfer mechanism to maximize efficiency.
LEED points were achieved through a combination of implementation of sustainable building practices including the use of non-toxic materials for walls (bamboo), ceilings and flooring, zero tolerance for PVC components, energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems, extensive natural day lighting, the use of indigenous plants in landscaping. A high percentage of the (85%) demolished site structure was re-cycled.
The project was awarded a LEED GOLD rating.
Crescent Village Inkwell Office Building
Construction on this 4-story steel framed premium office building was completed in May 2009. Extensive day lighting, sunshades and operable windows that deflect excessive heat and glare will increase comfort and employee productivity levels. Other sustainable feature include a variable flow ground source heat pump, which allows each tenant to tap into a water loop that’s coupled with the temperature of the ground to add or take away heat from each individual space.
The project was awarded a LEED GOLD-CS (Core & Shell) rating.
Oregon Coast Community College Central Campus
Construction of the Central Campus includes a variety of materials: the 2-story portion has concrete block (CMU) walls at the first floor, steel wide flange beams and columns supporting a second floor concrete deck, and wood stud walls and a wood framed roof above the second floor. One-story portions of the facility similarly are wood framed and a high bay community room is highlighted by glue-laminated long span trusses.
The project was awarded a LEED SILVER rating.
EWEB Roosevelt Operations Center
Eugene’s Water and Electric Board is dedicated to providing high quality energy and water services in a sustainable way that reflects the utility’s responsibility to the community it serves. Design and construction of their new $70M campus in West Eugene incorporates numerous energy saving features including photovoltaic panels, 100% onsite recycling of storm and sewer water and an Echo Machine.
The project is seeking a LEED GOLD rating.
