Marymount College Library Addition and Celia Hall Classroom Renovations
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
The new library building will house spaces for conventional stacks, library offices, a lecture hall, computer lab, learning center, proctoring facilities, restrooms, study rooms, a coffee bar, reading and lounge areas. The College desired a beautiful new library constructed of environmentally responsive materials powered, heated and cooled with sustainable and energy-efficient systems. Syska’s team of engineers is working closely with the design team and the College to implement environmentally responsive systems that will support LEED Gold Certification.
As part of this renewable energy program, Syska Hennessy Group has undertaken engineering a 24 kW Photovoltaic (PV) system. This system will be a grid-tied system with interconnection to the serving utility metering equipment. PV panels will be roof-mounted unifacial panels.
