On Wednesday, April 6th, SOM Design Director Paul Danna and Associate Directors Steven Zimmerman and Susan Bartley will present the design for the New United States Courthouse – Los Angeles to civic and design leaders at the Sustainability at City Hall event series. Driven by environmental performance and sustainable strategies, the nearly complete federal courthouse will achieve LEED® Platinum certification and meet the General Services Administration's goals to reduce energy use by 2020.
Co-hosted by the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the Mayor's Office of Sustainability, the event brings together leaders from the Los Angeles Business Council, the Urban Land Institute, and the Los Angeles chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council to discuss sustainable projects being built in Los Angeles. The monthly series engages the building community to identify code-related and regulatory hurdles in order to streamline the process to build sustainable projects. The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability uses feedback from the discussions to guide and improve their efforts to promote sustainable building practices.
