The new UCLA Health Training Center, Home of the Los Angeles Lakers has recently earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certification.
The 120,000-square-foot facility in El Segundo will serve as both the Lakers’ training facility and the home court for the South Bay Lakers. The building contains two full basketball courts and state-of-the-art features to enhance training, strength and conditioning, nutrition and injury prevention and treatment. The project scope began with the objective of obtaining LEED Gold, but was elevated to LEED Platinum as the Lakers and design teams raised the bar on energy efficiency. The Lakers participated in Southern California Edison’s Savings By Design (SBD) program, which provides cash incentives and technical/design assistance to maximize energy efficiency and sustainability for nonresidential construction. Projections indicate the energy efficiency measures installed in the facility will reduce electricity consumption by 34 percent compared to the national LEED baseline and by 20 percent compared to California’s Title 24 Building Standards Code.

The Associated Students Sustainability Center at CSUN is a highly sustainable, multifunctional work and learning environment. Home to the university’s recycling operations and its Institute for Sustainability, the building highlights and contributes to the recycling and sustainability education efforts housed within. The Net Zero Energy facility features a 25kw photovoltaic system on the roof of the recycling center to offset the energy required to support the building’s administrative functions. A solar thermal and hybrid hot-water heat pump provides 100% of the Center’s hot water needs, and multiple strategies to reduce water consumption.
