Jess S. Jackson Sustainable Winery

Location: Davis, California
Client: University of California Davis

The 8,500-square-foot Jess S. Jackson Sustainable Winery Building (JSWB) is a design-build project for the University of California at Davis. It houses technologies that will support the adjacent Brewery and Winery Facility (BWF), allowing it to be the world’s first self-sustaining, net-zero water/carbon/energy teaching and research facility. It is expected to be the first building at any university to be certified Net Zero Energy under the Living Building Challenge. The technology it will hold includes water harvesting and filtration, carbon sequestration, fuel cells and others. Through a collaborative delivery process, the project was delivered at a final cost of 11% less than the original budget, including significant enhancements not deemed possible in the original scope.
