Santa Barbara City College West Campus Center
Santa Barbara, California
The new West Campus Center on campus condenses multiple departments into one building, creating a space for students and faculty that is a “one-stop shop.
The 33,600 sf, three-story building houses 23 classrooms and 15 faculty staff offices which were previously housed in portable buildings.
The project includes multiple sustainable features including a second-story roof garden planted with native, drought-resistant plants; vegetated swales to promote rain water infiltration; water usage reduction fixtures and fixture fittings; on-site water source and reclaimed water; naturally ventilated spaces with operable windows and louvers; panoramic glass curtain walls for interior daylighting, and high performance glazing.
The long list of sustainable building design features above were all contributing factors in the award of the highest certification the USGBC has to offer for New Construction (NC): LEED Platinum. “Achieving Platinum certification is not something every institution can accomplish. The fact that SBCC’s first LEED project earned Platinum has made us all very proud.” said Vice President of Business Services Lyndsay Maas.
