los angeles fire station no.13

> USGBC LEED ® Gold Certification

This was the third station that Candice Wong worked on with the City of Los Angeles as a part of their fire bond program. This station includes sustainable design features, such as high efficiency mechanical units, recycled content materials, and energy efficient roofing.

Station 13 was the first fire station in the bond program to exceed the City’s minimum LEED requirements with Gold Certification. Though the project started prior to the introduction of LEED version 2.2, Candice and the design team chose to utilize many of the more stringent 2.2 credit requirements and the new online documentation methodology. The project reuses a contaminated brownfield site and reduces the urban heat island effect with high albedo roofing and paving.

The station design received an Excellence in Architectural Design Award from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission.

Project completed while Candice Wong was with RRM Design Group. Candice was the Sustainability Design Manager.
