- Operations & Maintenance Warranty Manual
The University of California, Davis continues to exemplify sustainable building operations through its renowned Viticulture & Enology Department with the opening of the Jess S. Jackson Sustainable Winery Building (JSWB). On track to be the first university building to be certified Net Zero Energy under the Living Building Challenge, the 8,500 sq. ft. facility incorporates equipment and systems that will allow the winery and the adjacent brewery and food-processing facility to be the world’s first self-sustaining, near zero-carbon footprint teaching and research facility.
stok was contracted by Pankow Builders to serve as the project’s quality assurance manager, verifying that the installation and functional performance of the winery’s commissioned systems—such as electrical, HVAC and renewables—were on par with the winery’s design. In doing so, stok affirmed that the building is running correctly, which will help maximize energy efficiency to achieve net zero energy use. In addition, stok created an Operations + Maintenance and Warranty Manual of all the building’s commissioned equipment to train the winery’s facility managers on how the equipment works, and how to best maintain it for optimal performance—all the way to net zero.
- One of the first commercial buildings to use a blower door test to validate the low air infiltration rate of 1950 cubic feet per minute at 50 Pascals—as tight as a passive house
- Provides water harvesting, filtration and power production to the adjacent Teaching and Research winery and Food Science Laboratory
- Pre-installed process piping will connect to systems that treat water re-use and that will enable net-zero water and energy use
- The concrete used was the first use of Central Concrete’s low-CO2 90% replacement cement mix, which contributed to enabling the lowest-carbon CMU wall built to date
- Carbon Cure concrete blocks permanently sequester carbon dioxide and maintain a consistent temperature
- Solar panels were installed to create a 5kw system that can accommodate up to 30kw as needed to maintain net zero energy over time
- Building envelope insulation consists of R-59.5 walls and a R-76 roof
