As of April 2019, Integral Group is proud to share that the Harker School Theater has been Certified LEED Gold with a total of 66 points. Together with the Gymnasium, both buildings in the Event Center are now LEED Gold Certified.

The Harker School Gym in San Jose received LEED-NC v2009 Gold certification with a total of 72 points in 2018. Part of an overall multipurpose event center, this 33,000 ft² facility provides students with training spaces, dance studios, locker rooms for team sports, and therapy rooms with cold/hot pools and an underwater treadmill.

The gym and new theater is highly energy efficient, including a 140-kilowatt photovoltaic system to keep the buildings about 25% off the grid.
