Los Angeles CCD's Pierce College Facilities, Maintenance and Operations Building includes a paved maintenance yard and a central plant. The building is 42,000 SF and the yard is approximately 85,000 SF. The overall design will be built to campus standards and have a 14' minimum height clearance in the shop. The building is designed to meet or exceed LEED Gold certification standards and every opportunity has been taken to look for new, appropriate green technologies. In addition, the entire yard area will be surrounded with a graffiti resistant solid block wall that will keep the maintenance operations sights and sounds to a minimum, thus minimizing disturbance to the educational environment and surrounding community. The Maintenance & Operations project is the first to be built using the new District-wide BIM standards. As the design continued the District added a Net Zero Energy Program as well as a Photovoltaic Farm and Central Plant.
