PUBLIC WORKS/ GOVERNMENT WORKPLACE TRAINING
LOCATION LOS ANGELES, CAIFORNIA
The conceptually designed proposal for a Leading Edge Training Center (LETC) in Long Beach, California offers quality high school, career dual enrolled, and adult career and technical education programs featuring state of the art training facilities and professional, industry-certified instructors. Students experience the sustainable teachings in the classroom readings firsthand through the constructed atmosphere of their surroundings.
Evaporative cooling towers are used to cool the interior environment. In addition, the narrow footprint with both interior and exterior operable windows, increases the effectiveness of cross ventilation to passively ventilate the building. These strategies, combined with a large photovoltaic array on the roof create a net-zero energy facility.
