The Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center is a youth justice facility with educational programming, a courtroom and medical offices in a total of 79,000 sf. Loisos + Ubbelohde provided energy modeling for LEED certification, parametric modeling to advise on system and envelope selection, daylighting consulting, analyzed the effect of the photovoltaic array and advised on optimal electric lighting for energy conservation for this design-build project. Sustainable features of the building include an 850 kilowatt solar system designed to supply more than 60 percent of building energy needs and water efficiency strategies that save an estimated 7 million gallons of water annually. The $177 million project has won numerous awards, including the distinction of being the first and only juvenile justice facility to obtain LEED Gold certification in 2007.
