Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — SFJAZZ: Achieving Sustainability within Performance Spaces, an online course in the 2013 DesignRealized Eco-Responsible Design 2030 Continuing Education Series, is scheduled for Tuesday, October 8 at 12 p.m. Pacific / 3 p.m. Eastern. Designed by Mark Cavagnero Associates, the SFJAZZ Center is the first ground-up facility on the west coast dedicated to jazz performance and education.

During this case study, Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, will discuss how the design team worked to identify solutions to achieve a high-performing sustainable building that would compliment the stringent acoustical and lighting requirements of a performance hall. Some of the features include a 100-percent outside air low velocity displacement system, radiant floor heating, and natural ventilation.
