The Convention Center team, led by SMG and Levy, has a robust sustainability plan in place to minimize the facility’s footprint on the environment.

The LEED Gold certified building has water efficient landscaping to reduce water consumption, with many other water conservation features like low flow water fixtures.

Lighting reduction plans include facility wide lighting sensors and LED technology.

The building uses low and no VOC paint and cleaning products whenever possible and construction included 275 bike racks on the malls. The building is located near RTA bus and rail lines, optimizing alternative transportation options.

These are just a few of the highlights, but did you know the building also has an on-site downtown farm? Yes, chickens and pigs, along with more than a million honey bees generating their own honey! We'll follow the tour with a networking happy hour on the farm. You won't want to miss this tour!
