Map It!


Hoag Health Center-Newport Beach consists of three medical office buildings, two parking structures, and a proposed public caf?. The three medical office buildings in the center are the first medical office buildings in Newport Beach, California to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance. Building 500 is a 3-story, 110,407-square-foot building and contains Hoag Endoscopy Center, Hoag Voice and Swallowing Clinic, and CHOC Pediatric Subspecialty Clinic, along with Hoag Corporate Offices.


Each tenant suite was designed to perform 10 percent below Title 24 energy requirements to comply with standards set by Savings by Design, a program administered by Southern California Edison Company. As part of the design, the building management team made energy-efficient electrical and mechanical decisions.


For the electrical infrastructure of the building, the lighting for the tenant improvements is designed in accordance with Savings by Design Requirements.  Savings by Design requires energy usage to be 10 percent less than allowed by the State of California Title 24 energy requirements. Over 95 percent of the lighting in this project utilizes T5 and T5HO fluorescent lamps or compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) with electronic ballasts for the optimum balance between lighting levels and energy savings available. Most tenant lighting is controlled automatically by occupancy sensors so lights are only on when the spaces are occupied.


For the mechanical infrastructure of the building, the team made strategic decisions to optimize energy use and reduce energy consumption. In addition to the technologies listed to the right, the team implemented the following:


Stage 3 - Load Reductions

-- Full direct digital control (DDC) system


Stage 4 - Fan Systems

-- High performance air filtration (95 percent efficiency)


Stage 5 - Heating and Cooling Plant

-- Dedicated HVAC systems for 24 hr/day loads

-- High efficiency condensing units for added split systems


Other Technologies/Strategies

-- Water-saving fixtures for lavatories of 0.5 GPM in lieu of 2.2 GPM

-- High efficiency domestic hot water heaters

-- Hot water recirculation system for domestic hot water

-- Hot water re-circulating pump on Aquastat control
