Green Assistance Program - Two More LEED O+M Projects Submitted!

The GAP Project Teams for the Old Globe Theatre and Federal Building (Hall of Champions) in Balboa Park have been hard at work documenting all the LEED O+M credits and prerequisites.  With our volunteers’ enormous effort and dedication from Old Globe and Federal Building staff, we have officially submitted each project for LEED Review! The Old Globe was submitted for 52 points and the Federal Building was submitted for 51 points under the LEED O+M rating system.  If all points are approved, both projects will achieve LEED Silver certification!  

The San Diego Green Building Council would like to thank our numerous volunteers and facilities staff for the countless hours of work they all put in on both projects!  We could not have completed these without your continuous work.  We would also like to thank our partners for making these projects possible; Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, San Diego Gas and Electric and the City of San Diego!

With the two projects coming to an end, we are happy to announce the beginning of two new GAP Projects.  We have partnered with two new non-profit organizations to help in the greening of their facility and educating participants in the field of sustainability/green building.  The two new organizations include the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation (JCNI) and the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank (Food Bank).  The JCNI project will be a hands-on/educational learning series about sustainability and green buildings concluding with a feasibility study on the JCNI facility.  The Food Bank project will be a project-based education program to help the facility in their pursuit of LEED O+M certification. We are excited to kick off both projects in October of this year! Please follow this link to sign up on our interest list.  Further details regarding each project will be released soon on our GAP page.
