Strategy & Services: The Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center (TVHC) is a two-story medical clinic building providing care to low-income and non-English speaking communities of Alameda County and surrounding city areas. Led by Sherwood Development and driven by a passionate commitment to contributing to the community, the project team came together to conduct extensive fundraising in order to finance the project. stok helped the building overcome poor equipment operation through commissioning, as well as played a large role in making the project engaging and accessible to the community by educating locals about the building’s sustainable features.
Design Details: The TVHC has an extensive on-site photovoltaic system in the parking lot and on the building’s roof, resulting in an estimated 70% reduction in energy costs. The building uses highly efficient plumbing fixtures and appliances, and also diverted a majority of construction waste from landfill. Going above and beyond specific efficiency measures, stok provided a marketing piece for the project, designing bilingual educational signs for sustainable building features to fulfill the project team’s goal of creating a building that is also an educational space.
“The TVHC passionately serves the low-income population with a mission of providing quality health care regardless of the ability to pay. stok was thrilled to work with a values-driven project team to deliver an exceptional space for such an inspiring organization!”
Outcome: The project achieved LEED Gold, and serves as an exciting, engaging, and inspiring space for the local community. Aligning with stok’s values, this organization promotes equitable access to healthcare through advocacy and community empowerment, with a strong emphasis on sustainable development and minimal reliance on finite resources.
