District’s vision creates a new model for energy efficiency in public utility facilities.
Clark Composite Architectural Precast Panels (C-CAPP) brought many benefits to the new Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) East Campus Operations Center, helping the facility to now serve as a nationwide model for customers and public-utility companies in the ongoing sustainability movement.
Energy Efficiency- C-CAPP contributed to the Net Zero energy rating of the new SMUD operations center by providing a high R-value, an air and vapor barrier, and high sound transmission coefficient (STC) rating all in one precast component.
Reduced Construction Time- By being formed offsite, and transported "on demand" to the jobsite, the precast C-CAPP panels reduced construction time. Interior construction was accelerated due to the continuous insulation already installed in the precast panel allowing for quick framing and dry walling.
Design Flexibility- The precast concrete cladding finish provided a durable, attractive finish on the exterior, and features a buff colored hue with a light sandblast finish.
Longevity- The precast concrete panels offer inherent protection against mold and fire, and can be cleaned with only a water wash.
