Garden Grove, CA 

Southland Industries, one of the nation's largest design-build mechanical contracting firms, was recently awarded the San Fernando Valley Family Support Center project located in Los Angeles, California. The design-build project team is comprised of Pankow Builders, HKS Architects, Cupertino Electric, and Southland Industries.
Totaling 212,000 square feet, the facility will consist of an office building with two towers that are connected by a walkway. With office space, meeting areas, and multi-level break areas between floors, the project will also include a 1348-car parking structure. Southland's scope of work on the project will include mechanical, plumbing and controls services. Utilizing a combination of under-floor and traditional variable air volume systems, evaporative condenser units will provide chilled air for the facility into a central shaft located within each tower. The plumbing system will serve five stories of lavatory facilities in each of the towers, as well as provide additional service for three future mixed-use tenants on the lower level.
Currently expecting to achieve LEED Gold certification, the project team is looking to pursue LEED Platinum by utilizing photovoltaic renewable energy sources on the roof of the parking structure. Design is expected to begin in late May 2013, with construction of the parking structure scheduled to commence in August 2013 and construction of the building starting January 2014. Overall, project completion is anticipated by June 2015.
