CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY MONTEREY BAY BUILDING 16 DINING COMMONS is LEED® Silver certified. This project modernized the former Fort Ord cafeteria into a modern dining facility with emphasis on fresh air ambiance and efficient service.
• All of the interior lighting was upgraded to modern efficient fixtures with day lighting controls as well as focused lighting in the dining areas.
• The ventilation system was upgraded to efficient rooftop air handling units with increased outside air flow to enhance interior conditions.
• The existing boilers were removed, and the dining facility was connected to the campus-wide hot water system. Domestic hot water was provided by a separate heat exchanger coupled to the campus heating hot water loop.
Commissioning services verified the new air handling system’s operation, added building control systems, replacement kitchen hoods and associated make-up air fans as well as the exhaust fans. The heating hot water and domestic hot water systems were also verified as well as the upgraded lighting controls.
