One of the state's first passive-HVAC commercial buildings, the teaching and research facility named for a winery pioneer is located on one acre of the Robert Mondavi Research campus at the University of California, Davis. The $2.84-million design-build project, which supports the adjacent brewery and winery facility, was delivered 11% under budget. Dynamic energy modeling determined a design that uses the least energy while maximizing aesthetics and function at the lowest possible cost. This resulted in elements such as R-60 walls, R-85 roof, triple-glazed automated windows, shading fins, daylighting and water harvesting. As a result, the facility is anticipated to become the first building at any university to be certified as net-zero energy use.
