An Evening of Energy Efficiency, Urban Renewal, and ROI Blended in One Refreshing Design Cocktail!

SPACE Architecture + Design used approximately $52,000 in local and federal incentives to improve the efficiency of their new 7,500 sq ft studio in St. Louis’ resurgent Grove District. The studio’s innovative systemic design includes a heating/cooling system that utilizes 15 geothermal wells buried 200′ below the parking lot, a rooftop solar array, cooling fins, desiccant wheel and radiant flooring. The heating and cooling system and other efficiency enhancements translate to 51% less energy use than a similar sized facility built at the City baseline and approximately 50-75% monthly energy consumption savings potential. The system will pay for itself in six years.

What does efficiency look like? Does it pay?

See for yourself and learn more about how effective policy shapes programs like those that helped to make the new SPACE studio a reality-

and how Missouri can do more.

Meet the Renew Missouri clean energy crew – Erin, PJ, and Jason – and our Clean Water team – Caroline and Lorin.
