Cal State Los Angeles
LEED Gold Building 12
Los Angeles, CA
2017 - 2021
The renovated tower houses lecture halls, conference rooms, study areas, and more.
CSULA’s LEED Gold Building 12 was once the home of the University’s Physical Sciences Department. The 9-story building was built in 1972 and was partially in use at the ground floor and basement levels. Following the Physical Sciences Department's transition to a new complex, the initial plans to demolish the building were changed after the University found that the interior of the building could be renovated. The project team saw an opportunity to put the mid-century concrete building to work by consolidating multiple services into a single, state-of-the art building. Retaining the building’s structure, the interior renovation and replacement of the existing building systems make for an improved on-campus experience for the CSULA community.
Certified as LEED Gold in November 2022, the building includes, lecture halls, conference rooms, workrooms, lounge/study areas, multi-purpose outdoor tables and open offices. In addition to the Administration and Student Life programs, it provides spaces for the Academic Affairs, Finance, University Advancement and President’s Office divisions. Floors one to four house the student ecosystem, while floors five to eight house the administrative services.
P2S provided MEPT engineering as well as AV and security systems for the building renovation. All of the building's existing interior partitions, finishes and equipment were demolished for a complete interior redesign. Seismic, fire/life safety and building systems replacements exceed current Title 24 standards, giving CSULA an efficient and comfortable space for its new occupants. P2S was responsible for MEPT schematic design, design development, construction documents, plan check approval, bidding and construction support services and project close-out.
