Los Angeles Convention Center Named As Water Efficiency Project Of The Year Finalist

Jan 28, 2016

Los Angeles, CA (January 28, 2016) The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) was named a finalist for Water Efficiency Project of the Year during the LA Better Buildings Challenge (LABBC) 2nd Annual Innovation Awards held yesterday in Los Angeles.

Notable projects contributing to LACC’s nomination include the installation of over 700 low-flush toilets, replacement of 30,000 sq. ft. of turf with drought-tolerant plants and vegetation, adjustment of irrigation practices, replacement of 80% of sprinklers, and improvement of facility maintenance to eliminate leaks.

The AEG-managed facility became the largest convention center in the U.S. to earn LEED EB+OM Gold recertification in September 2015, and has been a champion of environmental sustainability for many years. While the LACC did not win the award, the facility is pleased to have been recognized by LABBC and its members for its ongoing water conservation efforts.
