UCLA Pauley Pavilion Effort Earns ENR Award

ENR California recognized the UCLA Pauley Pavilion Renovation and Expansion project with its Award of Merit, adding to a list of awards the project has received from local and national trade associations.

Xcel Mechanical Systems served as the Mechanical Engineering subcontractor on the project.

The UCLA Pauley Pavilion scope of work included approximately 57,000 square feet of expansion and 180,000 square feet of renovation to the existing facility. This included revisions to the seating, life safety systems, restrooms, concessions, entrances, fan amenities, athletic facilities, and a new interior concourse encircling the entire arena, for a total area of more than 237,000 square feet of new and remodeled space. The project team has been widely praised for opting to renovate the historic sports facility rather than demolishing it and building a new one.

The project achieved LEED Gold certification upon its completion, and has also been recognized by the following organizations:
– Los Angeles Business Journal – 2013 Commercial Real Estate Awards, Best Redevelopment Project
– U.S. Green Building Council- Los Angeles Chapter – 2014 Sustainable Innovation Award
– Los Angeles Business Council – 2011 Architectural Award
