LEED EBOM Gold Again Brought Home to OCCC

The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), recently re-certified its 3 million sq ft north-south building as LEED EBOM Gold.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) first awarded the building’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in 2013. Because the building had already been constructed, the specific certification was LEED Gold for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (EBOM)[1].

The 2018 recertification team included professionals from the convention center, TLC Engineering, and ecoPreserve:

  • Jeff Benavides (ecoPreserve)
  • Andrea Cardona (OCCC)
  • Hector Clemente (OCCC)
  • Kathrine Diamond (OCCC)
  • Mital Hall (ecoPreserve)
  • John Roberts (OCCC)
  • Kristy Walson (TLC Engineering)

OCCC is the second largest facility of its kind in the United States.
