The 2001 Energy Efficiency Integration Awards (EEIA) Winners

Isla Vista Elementary School

The design teams of four outstanding California buildings were honored June 29 at a black-tie gala at the Los Angeles Millenium Biltmore Hotel. The teams won this year's Saving By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards, sponsored by the American Institute of Architects, California Council, and the state's four largest utility companies.

This awards program honors design teams and their clients who have worked together to make significant progress toward achieving an elegant synthesis of award-winning design and low energy use strategies.

"By making that extra effort to aim beyond minimum energy performance codes," commented Janith E. Johnson, AIA, manager of new construction services with Southern California Edison Company, "these design teams have produced a host of benefits — not only for their clients, but also for the occupants of these energy-efficient buildings and the public. The owners of high-performance buildings enjoy lower operating costs and higher property values. Occupants gain greater comfort, health, and productivity. The public is rewarded with cleaner air due to reduced power plant emissions. More importantly this year, energy-efficient buildings reduce the state's overall demand for electricity, which helps keep electricity prices in check for everyone in California."
