UC Davis California Avenue Net Zero Lecture Hall
Integral Group worked with UC Davis on the design for a new lecture hall which recently broke ground. The new building will house up to 600 seats and state of the art audio visual equipment. Through a highly collaborative design process, Integral Group is providing mechanical and electrical engineering and sustainable design services.
The project is designed to be Net Zero Ready, giving the University the option to provide solar photovoltaics at a later date. The Integral team is also working closely with the University on a solar thermal collection system to export to a future campus hot water loop. To support the use of 100% daylight, the modeling team provided exceptional daylighting studies to ensure lighting troughs and other natural lighting sources will illuminate the students and desks – and not the presentation screen – in all daylighting conditions.
