The USGBC-LA recently hosted its 5th Annual Sustainable Innovation Awards and recognized Pierce College Library/Learning Crossroads with a Sustainable Innovation Award for Energy and Atmosphere. The 5th Annual Sustainable Innovation Awards recognize exceptional achievement and innovation in each Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) category for countywide certified projects from the past four years. The submissions—judged for innovation, community impact and team collaboration—attract project teams throughout Los Angeles County’s sustainable community and are awarded regardless of LEED certification achieved. HMC’s Eera Babtiwale and Armando Gonzalez were on hand to accept the award on behalf of the entire team during USGBC-LA’s Green Gala.
