The King-Chavez Health Center is located just 2.5 miles east of the San Diego Harbor in the National City area of San Diego, California. The building site is located at 950 South Euclid Avenue on the corner of Logan Street in the heart of the community, near a variety of schools, parks, shops and services.
The King-Chavez Health Center is a three story, 20,076 sf newly constructed building consisting of individual office space, multi-occupant work areas, a variety of medical and dental exam rooms, labs and information desks. Inside the building the project team expects a 31% water savings stemming from its low-flow water and flush fixtures that are provided for the anticipated 111 clients that visit the health center each day.
Outside of the building the team presumes to see a 60% reduction of potable water in its landscaping and irrigation design. Through the use of highly reflective roofing materials, energy efficient glazing and thermal comfort systems, and an economical lighting design, the energy use savings for the building is estimated to be 28% below the Title 24 default values, with an energy cost savings of 21%.
