BCCI worked closely with the Energy Foundation to realize its goals for its new headquarters at the historic Bently Reserve. The project scope included a full build-out with executive offices, conference rooms, meeting areas, a kitchen and a reception area where recycled and renewable materials were used throughout. Test build-outs were provided to ensure client satisfaction and adherence to sustainable LEED requirements. Achievements included ceiling panels with dimmable fluorescent lights and daylight harvesting sensors and new air conditioning and lighting systems that were integrated with the upgraded base building systems. The end result is both efficient and aesthetically pleasing. This was the first sustainable project in California to achieve the highly sought after LEED-CI Platinum certification.
