MELVIN GARB HILLEL CENTER SDSU

WHAT

WHERE

San Diego, CA

WHEN

2014

The result is a 10,500 square-foot, two-story, LEED Gold certified building and the first modern Hillel facility in San Diego with seamless design that works with its environment not against it. Some of the features of the Hillel Center that helped it to earn LEED Gold certification include an energy efficient HVAC system, energy efficient appliances, the use of sustainable and recycled materials in construction, and a photovoltaic system (solar panels) on the roof. As a result of these sustainable features, the SDSU Hillel Center will enjoy lower operating costs over the life of the building, conservation of water, power and electricity, tax rebates, and improved health and safety of occupants. Additionally, the project provides a comfortable building that is a welcoming presence to anyone who enters it and is well-suited for a wide range of activities for individual members and the community at large.
