Meet Nevada's Clean Energy Community - Coda Group, Inc.

Meet Coda Group, Inc, a boutique architectural and consulting firm based in Southern Nevada, founded and operated by Kevin and Jennifer Turchin. Along with other design, improvement and planning specialties, Coda consults on sustainable certifications (such as ENERGY STAR, Green Globes and LEED) for both new and existing buildings. 

Coda's expertise in sustainable building runs deep. Among other projects, Jennifer Turchin (while Senior Consultant at Sellen Sustainability) served as the LEED consultant on the last two buildings in Nevada to achieve LEED Platinum certification. The Corn Creek Visitor Center at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, and the Las Vegas Cyclery are two of only seven publicly announced projects in Nevada to achieve the Platinum rating, the highest of LEED’s certification levels.

Coda focuses on providing real-world environmental solutions. The team brings project end-users together with designers and contractors during the efficiency modeling process in order to identify the most effective goals and strategies. Coda brings the same focus on responsibility and sustainability to its architecture services, which include public, commercial and residential projects.

The Turchins passionately support measures that grow green building and energy efficiency in Nevada. “It’s highly important that we push for energy efficiency and renewables,” Jennifer says.“ Businesses will save money in operations and put those savings back into the community.”

 

The Corn Creek Visitor's Center, at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, just north of Las VegasThe Center has 8-inch-thick concrete walls for insulation, and an unusual heating and cooling system that uses water cycled from an existing pond. The Visitors Center has seen a 42% improvement on baseline building energy performance, with 12% of its energy generated by onsite renewables. The project has also seen a 50% reduction in potable landscape water use.

 

Naval Facilities Quality of Life Package 4 (QOL 4) at the Marine Corps Base in 29 Palms, California. QOL4 is an $80 million complex including administrative buildings, a dining facility, a 500-seat open-air amphitheater, and a Ninja Warrior style obstacle course. The project attained LEED Gold certification in 2013. Currently, 30% of campus energy use is generated from on-site solar. The project is designed to be net-zero energy ready.
