The Symantec Culver City office complex is a construction project
comprising 497,000 square feet of office space and a six-level
parking structure. Principles of sustainability were incorporated
throughout the design and construction of the building, and the
project achieved a LEED-Gold Certification.
Amongst other features, the project was built with an advanced under floor ventilation system designed to deliver optimal thermal comfort control for building occupants, indoor fixtures that reduce water use by more than 40 percent, and an active pH control system at the cooling towers, which significantly reduces the need to use potable water for maintaining building systems. Combined with the project’s other water-saving measures, this saves close to 2.5 million gallons of potable water per year.
