Project Name: San Diego Central Court Location: San Diego, CA Architect: SOM, San Francisco Material: 4 mm thick Aluminum System: Pohl Europanel Rainscreen System Construction: current Area of Panels: 16,000 sq. ft.
The new building’s design, by the architecture firm of SOM, incorporates features historically characteristic of civic buildings, such as a podium, separation from the commercial realm, a large interior public space, and an identifiable crown, establishing continuity with the past in a contemporary way. It will be constructed with energy-efficiency and sustainability features enabling it to qualify for a LEED Silver rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. The design takes advantage of the region’s climate, employing sunlight to optimize interior day-lighting, and the new building will consume approximately 15 percent less energy than a code-minimum facility. The new building’s convenient location, in conjunction with the city’s planned redevelopment efforts, will promote pedestrian access and use of public transit.
For this project Pohl Engineering LLC / Rainscreen Solutions LLC received in 2014 contract for engineering service for custom designed metal panel system based on Pohl Europanel system.
