The 34 acre site is Stanford’s new satellite campus with 13 buildings providing a workplace for 2,700 employees primarily devoted to administrative functions, research and development, a medical clinic and other facilities. The buildings are located around a central greenway and 2.4 acres of open space accessible to the public.
The extensive landscaped areas, plazas, raised planters and green space required an entire range of high efficiency irrigation equipment. The site is irrigated with reclaimed water. Four pumps were specified for the campus. Sophisticated controls provide ET based programming and dynamic scheduling. To meet water and energy use mandates, flows are optimized across the entire site.
Irrigation design services included alternative water demand modeling and analysis, and Construction Documents through to Construction Administration.
Water and energy conservation are essential to the Sustainability goals for the site.
