Energy Efficiency Awards for Five California Buildings

California’s three investor-owned utilities – Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric have recognized five outstanding non-residential buildings as part of its “Savings By Design” program which encourages high-performance non-residential building design and construction in California.

San Francisco, California – September 24, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The winning design teams received their awards at the 2002 American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC) Awards Celebration earlier this month in San Francisco. “This year’s entries raised the level of competition across the board,” said Janith Johnson, AIA, manager of nonresidential new construction programs at Southern California Edison. “It made the jurors’ job more difficult, but it was gratifying to see better examples than ever of the integration of energy efficiency in new building design that we are fostering through the Savings By Design program.” The jurors chose two projects for Awards of Honor, citing their intelligent integration of energy efficiency into aesthetically outstanding building design. They bestowed Citations of Merit to three more projects for achieving specific aspects of energy-efficient and sustainable design. The awards given were as follows: Award of Honor – Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, Headquarters and State Operations, Sacramento Award of Honor – Camp Arroyo, Livermore Citation of Merit – Ross School, Ross Citation of Merit-South Cost Watershed Resource Center, Santa Barbara Citation of Merit-International Terminal at San Francisco Airport
