Los Angeles Community College District’s Pierce College Library/Learning Crossroads
Los Angeles, California
The Los Angeles Community College District’s Pierce College Library/Learning Crossroads is a gateway to the campus community, a community gathering spot, a tribute to classic California architecture, and an innovative learning facility all rolled into one. The 85,000 sf facility features a student welcome center, computer labs, book stacks, administrative offices, and a dining area. LACCD puts a focus on energy efficiency and sustainable building design, and those factors were crucial in this design-build project, which achieved LEED Platinum.
Glumac provided MEP engineering, and energy modeling services on the project. Revit was utilized in designing the major building systems and materials for compliance with the energy performance requirements set by LACCD for the Pierce College Library. Revit also helped coordinate the work amongst the design enemy.
To help achieve LEED certification, Glumac helped implement a displacement ventilation system that utilizes an under-floor air supply system. Additionally, a condensate water collection system that mitigates the amount of potable water used to landscape irrigation, as do low-flow plumbing fixtures and waterless toilets.
The project also received the Sustainable Innovation Award for Energy and Atmosphere from USGBC-LA.
