Fresh, Flowing Filtered Air: Meeting California Building Codes

By Paul Sneed

With the change of California codes in 2020, engineers are looking for new and innovative ways to meet codes in the most cost-effective way. Recently, S&P worked with Andrew Fabes of RJA Group and Lane Roper of wholesaler, Ascent, INC to come up with a solution to meet code using TR90 and TR130 Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) in a multifamily project at 735 Davis and 88 Broadway in San Francisco, CA.

735 Davis and 88 Broadway in San Francisco, CA creates 178 new homes for those who previously spent their lives homeless as a part of a project with the city of San Francisco. Together, these two locations will feature 10,500 SQ.FT. of retail and commercial space, a mixed-income childcare center, and a 9,500SQ.FT. paseo with beautiful landscaping and seating. The proximity of the two buildings allows Gen X and Millennial generation members to be close to Boomer and Silent Generation parents to aid in their day-to-day care. All residents can engage with the retail establishment below their apartment. Multi-Use buildings, like 735 Davis and 88 Broadway, feed into the desire of millennials and baby boomers for urbanization, the need for more rentals, and coworking spaces while focusing on sustainability.


A cost-effective solution was needed to replace the traditional bathroom exhaust fan (Premium CHOICE Exhaust Fan Series) and inline fan (TD-Mixvent) configuration to save time and money in installation. With two failed attempts, the engineer was given one last option from S&P USA. Discover in our case study how the customer saved $8,900 dollars using the method suggested by S&P USA.
