The new Jess S. Jackson Sustainable Winery Building (JSWB) has opened on the campus of UC Davis, in Davis, California. The 8,500-square-foot industrial building is the result of a design-build collaboration between Siegel & Strain Architects and Pankow Builders. The JSWB will house teaching and research facilities for winery, brewery, and food-processing activities.

Thanks to a five-kilowatt photovoltaic array, which can be expanded to 30 kilowatts to support future increases in energy needs, the building is expected to operate at a "net-zero" energy level. This is achieved with a series of aggressively sustainable passive systems, including a tight, super-insulated building envelope, and substantial thermal mass, including a concrete slab, CMU stub walls, and a future rock bed, that supports a night-ventilation cooling strategy.

The winery's aesthetic is decidedly industrial, with an exposed steel primary structure and corrugated metal siding used as a finish materail on the building exterior. A certification of Net-Zero Energy from the Living Building Challenge is expected.
