Power Plant Goes High Design at Sanford University Campus | F.E. Moran Special Hazard Systems

Palo Alto, CA -- Sanford University has built a power plant that aligns with the beautiful design of the campus.

Portland, OR-based architecture firm ZGF recently finished building an energy building on Sanford's Palo Alto, CA campus.  It is 125,600 square feet with offices, educational areas, and a power plant that generates power for the medical school and children's hospital.

The building sits on three acres and was part of a university-wide initiative to reduce fossil fuel dependency.  ZGF hid elements of the structure behind screens.  They also blended the historic character of the campus with the modern landcaped grounds done by New York's Central Park landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmsted.

Inside the building is filled with light - not what you'd expect from a building that houses a power plant.
