The International Center to End Violence, Presidio Building 100
San Francisco, CA
Building 100 is located on the Main Post of San Francisco’s historic Presidio. It was redesigned and reconstructed as a global action center to serve as a forum for international discourse, leadership training, education programs and public exhibitions designed to change attitudes and practices that harm women and children who are oppressed or exploited around the world. The project consisted of renovating the 3-story , 30,000 square feet of Building 100 which is a registered historic building and the addition of a new one story, 3,150 square foot building located in the courtyard on the west side of the building. The project includes a Conference Center, an Exhibition space, and ICEV office headquarters.
Silverman & Light’s scope included complete electrical engineering and lighting design for both the interior spaces and exterior site and landscaping. Energy saving, fluorescent lamp/ballast combination systems were used in the majority of the interior spaces to help meet the project's LEED and energy goals. Key components of the energy efficient design included Daylighting, and sun shading as well as “Smart” technologies. For the exterior site lighting, full cutoff light fixtures were chosen to minimize the impact of light pollution. The project has exceeded California's Title 24 Requirements by 30% and has been awarded LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council and is enrolled in PG&E’s Savings by Design program. The project was completed in January of 2012 at a cost of $18 million.
