The 2010 Energy Efficiency Integration Awards (EEIA) Winners
For their achievement in combining architectural elegance with sustainability and energy efficiency, seven California nonresidential projects received awards of recognition from the 2010 Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards program.
Every year, the recognition program, sponsored by Pacific Gas and Electric Company, San Diego Gas & Electric®, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Company and Sacramento Municipal Utility District, in conjunction with The American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC), acknowledges the extra time and effort it takes to successfully integrate architectural excellence and energy efficiency.
The jurors commented that the best projects respond well to climate and have an excellent contextual response to their surrounding area, while maintaining maximum comfort. They added that a building’s expression is what sets it apart as award-winning sustainable design.
