Discover how the Environmental Learning Center (ELC) at the Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant embraces sustainable practices along with providing interactive exhibits to create an immersive educational experience.
When we had the opportunity to transform this abandoned administration building into the Los Angeles Environmental Learning Center at Hyperion, we knew that meeting the US Green Building Council certification standards in the redesign would be a valuable demonstration in sustainability. This building incorporates the principles of environmental stewardship and shows how we can protect our resources. Look for tags throughout the building that feature:
• Building materials that conserve energy and save water• Technologies that take advantage of sun, wind and rain• Nature's filtering systems: wetlands and bioswalesWe are proud that the ELC has achieved a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the US Green Building Council.
