CCLB Environmental Education Center Signal Hill, CA
The Environmental Education Center is an 8,000-square-foot sustainable facility for the Long Beach Conservation Corps, a non-profit organization. The facility provides staff support offices and work areas for the sorting, bailing and processing of recyclables. A pre-engineered metal building, modified with wood cladding and custom storefront windows and trellises, was utilized to meet the demands of a constrained site, tight schedule and limited budget. Within the building, an open mezzanine overlooks the naturally ventilated processing area illuminated by skylights and glazed sectional doors.
