Horizon at Playa Vista to Power 70% of Building’s Core and Shell with Renewable Energy

HorizonPlayaVistaHorizon at Playa Vista, a new 466,000-square foot urban office development in the Los Angeles area, plans to use renewable energy sources to power 70 percent of the building’s core and shell electricity needs, which will be minimized by the use of high-efficiency windows and reduced lighting density.

The development also includes a storm water management system capable of removing 80 percent of all suspended solids from storm water runoff around the building.

The building project focused on several green measures including a sustainable site, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.

The building’s indoor air quality management program includes adequate outdoor air ventilation and fresh air intake volumes, guidelines for smoking around building openings and intakes, a CO2 monitoring system, and indoor chemical and pollutant source control measures.

During construction, the project diverted nearly 95 percent of on-site generated construction waste from landfills to recycling locations.

The office building also offers an alternative transportation program that includes preferred parking for carpooling vehicles and bicycle storage facilities.

As a result of these efforts, Horizon at Playa Vista is the first ground-up office building construction to be awarded the Gold LEED Core & Shell (CS) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council in Los Angeles.
