Rincon recently prepared a greenhouse gas study for a proposed Courtyard by Marriott Hotel project in downtown San Diego. The project would be 11 floors in height and would include approximately 90 hotel rooms located in San Diego’s Gas Lamp District. The study quantified long-term greenhouse gas emissions associated with proposed development using the California Emission Estimator Model. It also quantified temporary construction-related emissions and compared project features to greenhouse gas reduction measures recommended by the California Climate Action Team and the Attorney General. The study determined that the project would not exceed the City of San Diego’s interim threshold of significance.
Southwestern College Modernization Project Greenhouse Gas Study, City of Chula Vista
Rincon prepared a GHG study for three modernization projects proposed as part of the Southwestern College Educational and Facilities Master Plan. The three projects include relocation of existing school administrative offices and services, construction of a central plant for the efficient use and distribution of energy, and relocation of athletic facilities. Both construction-related and long-term emissions were calculated using methodologies recommended by the California Air Pollution Control Officers Association. Emissions were compared to local screening thresholds and “business as usual” emissions to determine significance.
