LARGE PROJECT EXAMPLES:



Structural Insulated Panel Commercial Structure (Seabrook Sailing Club)

MEGA PROJECT (Future Concept for a Multifamily 'Net Zero Energy' Design)
By applying the latest in integrated design with building information modeling practices. Modeling confirmed that an aggressively designed super insulated mutifamily dwelling complex limited to a nominal 15% window area could be designed to operate at below 3 kWh/sf-floor area per year. This means that a 1000 sf apartment would on average require 3000 kWh per year. The 1000 sf roof top solar array in Houston would make enough energy (12,000 kWh/yr) for four levels of 1000 sf stacked dwelling units. A portion of the cost of the array can be traded for the cost of roofing by use of new solar shingles from two manufacturers. The HVAC system is determined to consume about 50% of this annual total 3000 kWh unit energy, so HVAC geothermal wells are part of this design. An insulated cold and hot water loop provides additional thermal storage buffering.
