Mills College Natural Sciences Building

One of the newest buildings at Mills College, in Oakland CA, utilizes a  Delta Controls system and is also LEED Platinum certified. The Betty Irene Moore Natural Sciences Building provides laboratories, classrooms and research space to the school, all while making a minimum impact on the environment and energy demand. From material selection to water use, the Natural Sciences Building was designed for sustainability.

Mills College Project

ESI installed the new Delta Controls system featuring a rainwater collection system that can be later recycled throughout the building’s restroom toilets, automatic windows to allow natural ventilation and separate systems for precise control of sensitive laboratory conditions.

A large photovoltaic array on the roof provides more than 30% of the buildings energy demand while ESI continually monitors both building power consumption and production. The building’s energy usage is displayed in real time on a Lucid Design Dashboard in the building lobby. This monitoring is also stored in an on-site Delta server for future trending and verification.
