Robert Redford Conservancy Receives AIA | LA COTE, Merit Award & USGBC | LA Sustainable Innovation, Project of the Year

Built in 1931, the Robert Redford Conservancy occupies the renovated historical infirmary building near the Pitzer College campus that was one of the original Pomona College buildings. The Conservancy is a hub for sustainable research and discovery. The complex features laboratories as well as traditional indoor classrooms and open-air “outdoor classrooms.”  Transformed into a LEED Platinum Certified facility, the 12,000 sq. ft. project is also seeking Zero Net Energy operation and certification. 

Integral Group is proud to announce that this exemplary adaptive reuse project has recently received three awards in sustainability:

2018 AIA Los Angeles | Committee for the Environment (COTE) – Merit Award
