ZETA Test Plan
ZETA Communities (Zero Energy Technology & Architecture) is a San Francisco Bay Area startup company operating under venture capital funding, with the goal of using factory-built modular techniques to reduce construction costs, as well as providing an energy efficient, environmentally-friendly product. ZETA is building a two-unit live-work townhouse in undeveloped space in Oakland, CA, near the Fruitvale public transit (BART) station. The first unit (V1) should be completed in mid-June, with the second unit (V2) completed at a later date. The townhouse is scheduled to undergo detailed performance testing by NREL once the second unit has been completed in mid-July. Building Science Corporation (BSC) will perform a number of short-term tests prior to that, and install some of the long-term monitoring equipment. An elevation drawing of the townhouse is shown in Figure 1, and the first and second floor plans are shown in Figures 2 and 3. The key specifications are listed in Table 1. The preliminary BSC analysis results are summarized in Tables 2 and 3, for a single-family detached design with similar energy features. Detailed simulations of the final Oakland design will be performed in the near future.
