Owned and managed by Hines, Point West Commercentre at 1545 River Park Drive is one of three low-rise buildings that comprise the Point West campus, located in the heart of suburban Sacramento?s Point West submarket. This 120,160-square-foot, four-story building was designed by Peter A. Lenderrum Associates and completed in 1983. The exterior is finished in bands of precast concrete and dark reflective glass, and the lobby includes a distinctive water feature.

Point West Commercentre earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance through extensive retrofitting of the building?s energy-consuming infrastructure and an active?and ongoing?commitment to the energy-efficient management of the building operations. On the infrastructure side, HVAC systems at Point West Commercentre were upgraded to include variable frequency drives (VFDs) on building air handling units and cooling tower fans. These drives allow the HVAC systems to operate at levels that correspond closely to actual demand?reducing unnecessary energy consumption. Another upgrade was the installation of high-efficiency T-8 fluorescent lighting fixtures throughout the buildings?helping to reduce the amount of energy required to light tenant and common areas. On the management side, the building automation system was upgraded and expanded, providing building managers with additional information about building energy consumption and giving them additional tools to control it.

Hines has been recognized with multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm?s participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit
