Nacht & Lewis is in the Preliminary Plan phase of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Delano Office Replacement. This project incorporates the State’s Zero Net Energy standards, offsetting all energy used in the facility with renewable energy source on-site. In order to provide the DMV with the greatest possible value, our team uses an approach that emphasizes low maintenance and high efficiency solutions with photovoltaic power generation. Along with our engineering partners at AECOM, our team’s strategy is to provide the most efficient building shell possible with maximum day lighting and thermal performance using passive means. The goal is to obtain ZNE that has been tailored to the user and those maintaining the systems to ensure renewable energy resources are generated each year.
