Siegel & Strain Architects served as the green materials and LEED consultant for the David Brower Center, dedicated to green non-profit organizations and environmental education, in the heart of Berkeley. We participated in early design charrettes and helped to develop the green building strategies related to siting, daylighting, natural ventilation, structure, renewable energy generation, and rain water collection, to make this a cutting edge project.
Siegel & Strain also guided the materials selection, targeting local, renewable, recycled, certified and low-emissions materials for applications throughout the building.
As the LEED consultant, we helped set LEED goals, provided guidance during design and construction, and coordinated the LEED documentation processes.
