Media studies building and KCRW go green through Cx
Santa Monica College’s Academy of Entertainment & Technology (AET) is a collaboration of entertainment industry employers that prepares students for media careers. The campus is located away from the main SMC campus, in the center of the westside’s entertainment production district. Our Cx team provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and LEED Commissioning to three buildings: the KCRW Building; the existing AET Building; and the new AET Building.
We provided LEED commissioning and measurement and verification (M&V) for the three buildings which included renovation of the existing AET building with all MEP systems replaced (50,000 SF); construction of a new AET building (30,000 SF); and construction of a new building for radio station KCRW (34,000 SF). All three buildings have LEED 3.0 certification goals of LEED-Commercial Interiors, Silver Level.
