Regional Environment Studies Center

Manteca, CA

Project Overview

Manteca RESC bridges the gap between environmental awareness and action.

MUSD wanted to create an energy-independent, multi-use learning center that gives the Manteca community free access to environmental education while providing a model for future learning spaces. To create a best-in-class building, AMS combined high-efficiency systems with a 10kW roof-mounted PV system that generates more energy than required to power the center each year. All systems are monitored in real-time via GEN7’s web-based energy management dashboard which optimizes performance year-round. The custom design blends sustainability and energy goals with natural ventilation, extensive daylighting and recycled materials, including 150-year-old reclaimed barnwood siding. A detached butterfly cool roof was installed onsite.

  • RESC is California Central Valley’s first LEED Gold K-12 support facility
  • Solar power meets 100% of electricity needs to achieve Zero Net Energy
  • Energy dashboard tracks energy production and consumption via an iPad
