San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) employees begin moving from their previously leased offices into their new energy-efficient headquarters this month. The 277,511-square-foot building near City Hall demonstrates the latest in efficient building technologies and aims to achieve LEED-Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
The July issue of American City & County features the new building, accompanied by related video of a kinetic sculpture by Ned Kahn that is installed on the wind turbine tower.
Up to 7 percent of the building’s energy needs are generated onsite by rooftop solar panels and four wind turbines located in a tower on one side. See American City & County's site for more details...
