Since 2001, Pacifica Services Inc. has partnered with the Los Angeles Community College District’s (LACCD) Sustainable Building Program to provide sophisticated and diverse services to dramatically move nine college campuses to the forefront of sustainable construction, green-collar job preparation, and renewable energy generation. With a $6.2 Billion budget, this program is one of the United States’ largest green construction efforts.
LACCD selected Pacifica Services Inc. to provide its Sustainable Building Program with Accounting, Contracting, Labor Compliance, DBE Monitoring, and PLA Administration services. As part of the Program Management Team, Pacifica also provides Construction Management, Design, Energy & Sustainability Consulting, Procurement, Program Management, Project Controls Management, Quality Control, and Safety throughout all nine college campuses.
Pacifica Services Inc. also assisted the Program Manager with the implementation of Key Performance Indicators, Construction Management of new and existing projects, and procurement of Multiple Task Order Contracts (MATOC) for Professional Services, A & E Services, Inspections, and Asset Management benches.
With its robust transformation almost complete, LACCD has become a leader in environmentally responsible construction, modernization, and the creation of 85 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified structures District-wide. LACCD now generates solar power on its campuses, reducing the colleges’ carbon footprint and increasing energy cost savings.
Pacifica Services Inc. continues to collaborate with LACCD and provide innovative solutions today. Due to our deep involvement in the Sustainable Building Program, Pacifica continues to positively impact the lives of over 250,000 students annually, spanning a service area that covers 36 cities, and serves the diverse educational needs of underserved communities.
