AvalonBay’s First LEED Platinum Project Features Innovative Solar-Thermal/Tankless Water Heating System

Earning LEED Platinum for both the East and West buildings at Avalon Hayes Valley - AvalonBay's first Platinum certification - was no small achievement. The project, a podium-style structure with five levels of residential living in each tower situated over a single-level parking garage, accumulated a total of 81.5 points. Avalon Hayes Valley also scored well in "Water Efficiency" (9 of 15 possible points) and in the all-important category of "Energy & Atmosphere" (19.5 of 38). The project achieved an optimized energy performance in mid-rise buildings that exceeded the state of California's Title 24 energy code (version 2008) by 28.6 percent.
