UCLA’s Marion Anderson Hall achieves LEED Platinum
News | May 2020
A host of sustainable features and outstanding energy performance have earned the building USGBC’s highest rating for green design.
A luminous central atrium clad in highly efficient low-E glass exemplifies the building’s environmental strategy, which includes abundant daylighting throughout, operable windows in offices, and green roofs.
The facade design was developed through extensive study of shading options and exterior wall assemblies, resulting in a reduction of solar heat gain by as much as 50 percent and optimized overall energy performance.
By connecting to the campus chilled water system, the building makes use of UCLA’s energy-efficient cogeneration technology, while a local condensing boiler system significantly reduces atmospheric emissions.
