ARCH | NEXUS SAC , News: The Arch | Nexus SAC Reveal Label
We are very pleased to announce that Arch | Nexus SAC has become the first building in the California Central Valley to obtain a Reveal Label from the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). Reveal is a credible independent source for highlighting buildings with outstanding energy performance. The label is based off of 12 months of verified energy consumption data, and communicates a building’s energy performance in an elegant, easy-to-understand graphic. Reveal illustrates three important metrics for measuring energy performance: energy use intensity (EUI), zero energy performance index (zEPI), and energy use reduction from baseline.
The impressive results as indicated in the Arch | Nexus SAC Reveal Label are the result of a variety of design measures such as abundant daylighting, highly efficient workstations, and strategically placed operable windows that bring in fresh air. These measures, along with many others, result in a building that uses 57% less energy than an average office building. All of the energy (and then some!) that is used is offset by the on-site solar array making Arch | Nexus SAC a net-positive energy building.
