KMD Architects scoops multiple AIA San Francisco Awards

Architecture firm KMD has received two Citation Awards for excellence in the Integrated Project Delivery and Unbuilt Design categories of the AIA San Francisco 2010 Design Awards. The winning building in both these categories was KMD’s LEED Platinum design for the 13-story, 277,500 sq ft headquarters of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

The design for the new administrative building includes multiple sustainable features, as KMD aimed to exceed the requirements for LEED Platinum. Eco-friendly sustainable elements include a wind turbine on the façade to generate electricity for the building, implementation of renewable energy, water conservation and recycling components and use of solar panels to harvest energy from the sun. The building is designed to maximize natural daylight to create a healthy and productive work environment.

KMD Principal David Hobstetter said: “It’s an honor to be recognised by your peers, especially in a category where there is tremendous talent. Our ideal for the PUC is to establish a new benchmark for sustainable design in an urban environment while complementing the Civic Center’s historical architecture.”
