This Department of Motor Vehicles replacement field office facility located in Grass Valley, California represents a continuing commitment to sustainable building design by the State of California. The building is approximately 8,000 sf single story to be constructed (ground up) as a new stare owned facility by DMV. During design both DMV and DGS elected to pursue a “zero net energy” (ZNE) methodology. The building envelope and environmental systems maximize thermal and energy efficiency, natural daylighting was increased, and the photovoltaic system eliminated dependency on the electrical utility. Our team was responsible for complete planning and design for the building, site, and DMV improvements based upon program requirements provide by DGS and DMV. Our firm also provided the LEED consulting throughout the design process.
