DPR Construction - San Francisco, CA
Ted van der Linden, Director of Sustainability, DPR Construction, discusses DPR's first San Francisco based net-zero energy office. The office is designed to create the same amount of energy to offset the amount of energy consumed. All systems tie into a building information system dashboard to provides real-time data showing energy consumption and energy savings. View Smart Windows were one of the critical elements, lowering heat gain, eliminating glare and tinting automatically based on the position of the sun. Plus, dynamic glass offers a wow factor for DPR's employees in San Francisco where technology is part of the living labs at DPR.
