The ARXX Frontier Project, a sustainable demonstration building open to the public, has been recognized by Southern California Edison (SCE) for reducing its carbon footprint by 88,873 pounds of CO2, compared to a similar facility. This equates to 740 tanker trucks worth of CO2.
The Frontier Project is able to reduce its annual kilowatt‐per‐hour usage by nearly 100,000 by including ARXX insulating concrete form (ICF) construction as well as dual pane, low‐emissivity windows with exterior glazing, fly ash content in the concrete walls, a redwood shade trellis, LED lighting, day lighting concepts, and lighting control technology. Additionally, the Frontier Project is able to save around 2,500 Therms of natural gas annually with features including a green roof and cool roof that help reduce heat gain from the facility’s roof, a close approach cool tower and solar chimneys, and variable refrigerant flow air conditioning systems.
