Los Angeles Community College District - Proposition A Construction Program
Los Angeles, CA

Syska Hennessy Group is currently actively involved as a building systems engineering, sustainable design, and LEED commissioning consultant for the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) Proposition A Construction Program. As a national leader in Sustainable Design practices, Syska strongly supports LACCD's decision that all projects with Proposition A funding be designed to achieve a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED®) certification. Our current involvement with the district involves three diverse projects:

Los Angeles City College Student Admissions Building, Los Angeles, California

Syska Hennessy Group is currently providing consulting engineering and design services as a part of Amphibian Arc's team for this new 25,000 sf. Student Admissions Building on the Los Angeles City College Campus. When complete, the project will incorporate under floor air distribution, high efficiency lighting with automated daylight dimming controls, and a 75 kW rooftop photovoltaic system. Syska Hennessy's ability to combine sustainable design expertise with our higher education experience was key in our selection for this project.

East Los Angeles College Performing and Fine Arts Complex, Monterey Park, California

Syska Hennessy Group is currently providing consulting and engineering services for the East Los Angeles College Performing and Fine Arts Complex as a part of the Arquitectonica design team. This planned facility will feature over 100,000 sq. ft. of new space and house the Vincent Price Art Gallery, Theater Arts, Dance Performance, and Music, along with a 350-seat Performance Theater. The project team will apply sustainable building design principles, standards and processes to achieve either a Certified or Silver LEED® Building rating for this building.

Los Angeles Mission College LEED® Building Commissioning,Sylmar, California

Syska Hennessy Group is currently teamed with Jacobs Engineering to provide LEED® Building Commissioning services to Los Angeles Mission College. A basic level of commissioning is required for any building seeking a LEED® certification, and LACCD’s goal is to exceed Title 24 requirements by 10% for major renovations, and by 20% for new projects. Our team will provide these services throughout all three phases of the building process – design, construction, and final documentation.
