EPIC Symposium Gets Head Start with Tour of Remodeled Warehouse

The California Energy Commission is sponsoring a tour of an award-winning former warehouse space as a prelude to next week’s fourth Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Symposium.

The tour happens February 6 at the Architectural Nexus SAC Building, 930 R Street, Sacramento. The symposium is February 7 at the Sacramento Convention Center.

The Arch Nexus SAC building was a warehouse built in 1975. In 2017, it was transformed into an energy efficient office space earning LEED platinum 4 certification and other honors. A few weeks ago, the building was named the Engineering News-Record’s Best of the Best Green Project winner for 2017.

The facility is currently vying to become the first Living Building-certified facility in California. The certification program, administered by the International Living Future Institute, is the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings.

The extensively remodeled 8,200-square foot, single story facility features energy and water saving innovations including rooftop solar panels, an internal gray water recycling system and an on-site rainfall capture system with two 5,000-gallon storage tanks that hold enough rainwater to support all its water needs. It also has an onsite composting toilet system.

To register for the tour, which starts at 5:30 p.m. on February 6, or for the EPIC symposium, visit the EPIC Eventbee web page. To participate in the symposium remotely, view the event notice.
