On May 7, the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), a manufacturing-based trade association, announced the Pier 15 Exploratorium as their Project of the Year in the Building/Construction division. The project showcases Uponor’s Radiant Rollout™ Mats and more than 200,000 feet of Wirsbo hePEX™ tubing for the unique radiant heating and cooling system that uses the San Francisco Bay as a heat sink/heat source. The 330,000-square-foot, LEED-Gold structure is the largest net-zero energy and net-zero carbon museum in the United States and is projected to be 57% more efficient than the ASHRAE 90.1 energy standard.
