Energy Hub | Fountain Alley

The Energy Hub is a 21-story high-rise mixed-use development located at 35 S 2nd Street in downtown San Jose. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the innovative tower will incorporate a uniquely organic structure with an 'urban room' that visually reinforces Westbank’s goal of transforming the public realm experience of downtown San Jose. Ultimately, this curved building aims to provide a sense of common purpose and bring people together in an environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable way.

Contracted to provide civil engineering and land surveying services for The Energy Hub, K+W created an innovative Media Filtration System design that is an aesthetically pleasing enhancement to the building, identified grading constraints to reduce the potential for stepped finished floors, and worked with the architect to maximize the opportunity for amenity spaces. K+W was able to efficiently work with the design team to successfully integrate the City of San Jose’s pedestrian-oriented street layout vision into the overall project design and site grading plan.

All these forward-thinking plans integrate with the City of San Jose’s and the developer’s goals as well as general sustainability design practices. This high-end sustainable office, residential, and retail building is targeting LEED Platinum through the use of on-site energy generation, EV charging stations, bicycle parking, and a site design that promotes public transportation and provides extensive landscaping and multiple green spaces.
