Project Overview

The Regional Environmental Study Center (RESC) has become a showcase for teaching and training about sustainability, energy consumption and other aspects of what it means to be environmentally conscious in today’s world. This 3,000 SF modular building was a collaboration between LDA, American Modular Systems and the Manteca USD. Through careful guidance, LDA was able to bring competing ideas and input together to create this sustainability showcase for the district. Specific educational classes and training are provided, addressing energy consumption/reliance, use of rainwater for irrigation, solar, natural sun shading, and demonstration of eco-friendly materials and systems: low flow fixtures, low VOC materials, energy star appliances, LED lighting and auto sensors, solar hot water, and radiant barriers.
