LAVC Buildings Receive LEED Certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council

The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded a LEED Gold certification to the LAVC Community Services Center (CSC), and a LEED Silver certification to the LAVC Monarch Athletic Center (MAC). 

The CSC is a 18,000-square-foot building that houses the LAVC Community Services, Gymnastics Center and Monarch Summer Camp. Green features include a bio-retention garden for collecting storm water run-off, natural ventilation throughout the CSC building for efficient air conditioning consumption, and natural lighting for efficient energy consumption.

The MAC (also known as the Athletic Training Facility construction project) includes a new 23,000-square-foot stadium field house, which will house the the football team, soccer team, and track/field. Green features include water-efficient landscaping, fixtures that reduce water usage by 30%, and a lighting control system and natural lighting for efficient energy consumption.  

The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a third-party verification for green buildings, and certify that buildings address sustainability issues. Based on a number of points achieved, a project can receive one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Including these new certification, LAVC now has two LEED Gold, two LEED silver, and three LEED-certified rated buildings on the campus. The newly construction buildings were funded by the voter-supported Proposition A, AA and J.
