KAL Architects values the principles of sustainable design and over half of our staff is LEED Certified. LEED Designers aim to create buildings that impose little to no threat to the environment. Many of our designs, although not LEED Accredited, are designed with the principles in mind. Our designers constantly choose fixtures that are made from recycled materials and that reduce dependency on water and electricity. Below are several of our most recent LEED Accredited work:
VAMC San Diego Administration Building:
KAL Architects furnished the designs for a new Administration building at the VA Medical Center in La Jolla California. The building was designed to LEED Silver standards and includes energy efficient lighting fixtures, low-flush toilets, non-CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) HVAC systems, and solar panels on the roof of the vehicle shade structures.
