WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA-City officials, here, plan $125 million in capital improvement projects that will include the development of three LEED-certified facilities and expansion of the city’s open space. The city has named Heery International as program and construction manager for the facilities, which are part of the West Hollywood 25th Anniversary Capital Improvement Project.

Heery, which maintains offices locally in Los Angeles and Long Beach, will manage the construction of phase one of the West Hollywood Park master plan, the West Hollywood City Hall Community Service Center and parking project and phase one of the Plummer Park master plan. Since the city is pursuing LEED certification for each of the facilities, Heery will be in charge of monitoring sustainable initiatives and ensuring that LEED criteria are met, says Heery project manager Daniel Adams.

Phase one of the West Hollywood Park master plan will include construction of a 42,000-sf library to replace the city’s existing library, a 2.5 acre expansion of green space, new tennis courts and a 333-space municipal parking garage. Designed to meet LEED Silver rating criteria, the library and the West Hollywood Community Service Center may incorporate a photovoltaic system to convert sunlight into electricity.

The 18,000-sf West Hollywood Community Service Center and parking project will house a community service center, meeting rooms and office space built atop a multi-level, 200-space parking structure. During its construction, Heery will also oversee exterior improvements to the existing, adjacent city hall building.

The third project, phase one of the Plummer Park master plan, will remodel and expand Fiesta Hall into a multi-purpose performance venue, which will accommodate up to 200 people in theater-style seating. The plan also calls for enlarging parking and parkland, including a subterranean parking structure and increasing the park’s green space by 33,000 sf.

West Hollywood adopted one of the nation’s first green building ordinances in October. The ordinance, which grants special consideration to LEED-certified projects, establishes development standards for all new residential and commercial projects, as well as remodels and tenant improvements.
