Designed to achieve LEED-Homes Silver
Gateway Exchange is a 132-unit, 4-story multifamily affordable housing development that is pursuing LEED-Homes certification, and is designed to achieve LEED-Homes Silver. Partner Energy completed the energy modeling, which demonstrates 29% over code, earning the project 19 LEED points. The design team has committed to implementing numerous sustainability and energy efficiency measures, making a LEED Platinum level of certification within reach.
Partner Energy has played a significant role in this project, assisting the client through the CTCAC application phase and guiding the design team through the LEED process, confirming the credits the project plans to pursue to achieve LEED Silver. Partner Energy will be working with the construction team to verify LEED credits and provide HERS verification and testing services to meet both LEED and code requirements. Partner Energy will also be submitting applications for utility incentive programs such as Savings By Design and California Advanced Homes, which at this time is estimated to total over $100k in incentive funds.
