Hayward Public Library
Red Car Analytics provided LEED fundamental and enhanced commissioning and Title 24 commissioning. The systems commissioned included: HVAC, interior lighting and controls, domestic hot water, irrigation controls, building automation system, rainwater harvesting, and solar PV.
The project consists of a three-story public library. The building utilizes a decoupled ventilation and space conditioning system, DOAS and in-slab radiant for heating and cooling, as well as LED lighting with daylighting controls. The building is designed to be zero net energy using onsite solar PV; and, a rainwater harvesting system to provide irrigation as well as save and recycle 500,000 gallons of water per year. The Hayward library is one of the largest Zero Net Energy public libraries in the country.
Michele Sagehorn began commissioning work for this project while at Guttmann and Blaevoet and is completing the work with Red Car Analytics as a subcontractor.
