The Los Angeles Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers has awarded its Sustainable Engineering Project of the Year Award to LADOT Transit’s new Downtown Los Angeles Bus Operations and Maintenance Facility.
ASCE selected the transit facility for the award, “in recognition of the project’s unique achievements, its complexity, scope and engineering features.” The award was presented to LADOT Transit at ASCE’s annual meeting.
The LADOT Transit facility continues a decades-long commitment of the city of Los Angeles to provide clean travel options that reduce emissions and improve air quality. Its new facility will accommodate electric battery-powered buses, becoming one of the largest electric zero-emission bus facilities in California. The major transit infrastructure investment advances Los Angeles toward achieving Mayor Eric Garcetti’s goal to convert all transit buses in the city to electric vehicles in the coming years.
“This prestigious award recognizes the incredible work of all our partners who built this facility with a dedication to sustainable engineering,” said LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds. “At LADOT, we are proud to be a leader in creativity and innovation and will continue to deliver projects and solutions that guide us towards a sustainable future.”
LADOT worked with the Federal Transit Administration, Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, Department of Public Works, Gonzalez-Goodale and Sinanian Development, Inc. on the project.
The facility also has a LEED Platinum certification for sustainable building achievement and was awarded the Outstanding Architectural Engineering Project of the Year by the Metropolitan Los Angeles Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
