UCLA Mo Ostin Basketball Center Achieves LEED Platinum

University of California, Los Angeles Mo Ostin Basketball Center has achieved USGBC LEED-NC Platinum v2009.  This new, state-of-the-art training facility serves both the men’s and women’s intercollegiate basketball programs at UCLA. Located near Pauley Pavilion, this dedicated training facility gives more flexibility to those that utilize the Pavilion by allowing concurrent scheduling of facilities and enhance the training experience of athletes.

Integral Group provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design services and sustainability consulting for this project. Integral Group 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. Additionally, the team highlighted strategies for achieving 20% better than Title 24 Part 6. The building was required to attain LEED Gold rating in accordance with the University of California Regent’s Policy on Sustainable Practices. This requirement was surpassed by Integral Group by achieving LEED Platinum in close collaboration with Kevin Daly Architects.
