433 North Mathilda Avenue Offices
Integral Group provided LEED CS 2009 consulting and administration for this core and shell office building in Sunnyvale. The Integral Group consulting team worked closely with all team members to ensure that they were well versed in LEED goals and requirements, providing expert advice and guiding the team toward achieving LEED Gold certification, and ensuring a satisfactory, efficient and productive process. The project received priority permitting through the City of Sunnyvale-based on a commitment to meet LEED Gold +10%. This requires the project to achieve 70 total LEED points upon certification award. Integral Group collaborated with Vitae Architects and South Bay Construction in this Design/Build contract to clearly identify LEED strategies and credits, manage the team effectively to achieve the LEED goal, provide rigorous quality assurance of the LEED documentation throughout, and interface with GBCI to deliver a LEED Gold project.
The biggest challenge on this project was working with a design and construction team that were less experienced with the LEED process. We brought all of our tools, tricks, and experience to the table to guide the team with ease through documentation and material data management. The project was moving on a very fast schedule that included coordination with high profile potential tech client regarding the Tenant Design & Construction Guidelines and city of Sunnyvale expectations.
In addition to LEED consulting services, Integral Group also provided energy modeling and commissioning services. The Integral Group team performed LEED v3, fundamental, enhanced, and Title 24 commissioning services for the core and shell of this building. Commissioned systems include mechanical, lighting, domestic hot water, the photovoltaic system, and irrigation.
