Los Angeles Trade Technical College Technology Classroom Building, Los Angeles, CA
Part of Los Angeles Trade Technical College's South Campus, the five-story, 65,000 SF Technology Classroom Building doubles the college's technology-related curriculum and serves as a multi-purpose conference center. The facility includes two 120-seat lecture halls; 26 smart classrooms; instructional technology labs; a Distance Learning Center; a Faculty Center with 46 offices, workstations and meeting rooms; and a Conference Center with a banquet room and adjacent commercial kitchen for college functions and other revenue-generating events. The design provides an economical and optimal floor plate to give the college maximum flexibility for adaptation in the future. An eccentric brace frame structural system allows maximum light and views to offices and classrooms while efficiently managing material costs, saving precious budget resources for campus-defining surface materials of brick and stone. Certified at the LEED Gold level, the Technology Classroom Building and Student Services/Administration Building combine to optimize energy performance at a level 42% more efficient than Title 24.
