North City Campus Receives LEED Gold Certification – Project Featured in Architect Magazine Online


NCC_web_09_1733x1095pxThe JWDA team is pleased to announce that North City Campus, a 42,942 square-foot facility designated as the Campus of Excellence for Business and Information Technology for San Diego Continuing Education, has achieved LEED Gold Rating for New Construction.  The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System was designed by the US Green Building Council to encourage and facilitate the development of more sustainable buildings.

One of the many design elements that supports sustainable practices includes the use of large glass doors and windows that take advantage of San Diego’s climate to provide natural ventilation and daylight to the majority of interior spaces as well as provide occupant flexibility for indoor / outdoor meeting and gathering space.  Other measures incorporated to achieve the Client’s sustainability goals include the use of highly efficient mechanical and lighting systems that exceed state efficiency standards by 30%, also an over 40% reduction in water-use through the use of ultra-low flow fixtures and water efficient landscaping, as well as an underground drywell for treating storm water on-site.
