Award for Merit | Cal Poly Pomona Student Services Building

Teamed with CO Architects, Integral Group provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing daylight modeling, energy modeling, and sustainability consulting on this unique project. Integral was instrumental in guiding the building orientation and application of a high-efficiency building envelope to optimize energy efficiency opportunities, maximize daylighting, reduce mechanical systems reliance, and optimize thermal comfort.

Award for Merit | UCLA Ostin Basketball Center

For this project with Kevin Daly Architects, Integral Group provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing design services for the conceptual design phase of the project, in addition to lighting design, daylighting design, and sustainability consulting. Our designers assisted the client in outlining potential passive and active low-energy strategies, and guiding exterior façade and interior organization for optimal ways to capture light, natural airflows and thermal energy.

Congratulations to all of the project teams and our project partners for delivering such high-quality, award-winning projects!
