Symantec Corporation – Culver City, CA

Project details

  • 550,000 s.f. Entitlements and Office Campus Development
  • Two four- and five-story buildings and a six-level subterranean structured parking garage

LEED Gold rating achieved. Water conservation of more than 30% within the building using water-efficient fixtures and more than 50% using water-efficient landscaping. Optimized energy performance by designing systems to over 20% below Title 24 standards and performing commissioning on all electrical and mechanical systems. Greatly enhanced indoor environmental quality through the installation of an under-floor air system, which increases ventilation effectiveness and user control, and through the use of low-emitting paints, carpets, composite wood, adhesives and sealers. The project also reduced the use of materials and resources by diverting greater than 75% of construction waste from landfills and choosing to acquire over 40% of our building materials from local manufacturers. The heat island effect is reduced with the use of Sarnafil PVC white roofing, which has a cleaner and healthier installation process, as well as a high solar reflectance index (SRI). Stormwater runoff was addressed by installing a 72” stormwater system to reduce natural flows in the stormwater system during rain events.
