LEED Platinum for California college

The medallion represents certification of the highest standard of ‘Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’ (LEED) as defined by the US Green Building Council.

The Community Justice Centre, located adjacent to the law school’s current education centre in Seaside, California, includes a courtroom, five indoor and three outdoor caucus areas for mediation, and two offices. Although a relatively small (6,000 sq. ft.) project, the Community Justice Centre represents a number of notable 'firsts'.

It is the first LEED project in Monterey County to use a design and construction team wholly made up of local professional firms.

“Although not required under the LEED standards, it was important to the law school to give priority to local professional firms and local building material suppliers,” said the project architect, Daryl Hawkins of JHW Architects.
