"Our new Southern California Campus allows us to not only better serve customers regardless of geographic location but also to showcase the best of Southland's engineering and construction capabilities," said Dr. Ted Lynch, chief executive officer. 

Southland Industries partnered with LPA Inc., to completely remodel the 42,000 sq ft building in Garden Grove, Calif., and incorporate a design that facilitates collaboration, productivity, and innovation. The building features four different HVAC systems. Among these is a heat pump from the previous building, which was left in place to demonstrate the energy efficiency benefits that can be achieved with integrating existing HVAC systems with modern systems. The three new systems include displacement ventilation, fan-powered induction units, and chilled beams, all of which allow for an open and well-lit space for design teams and detailers to collaborate. 

A state-of-the-art controls system enables Southland to monitor real-time gas, electric, lighting, and HVAC usage, contributing to U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold certification.

The new building is adjacent to the company’s existing 92,000 sq ft fabrication facility, which will continue to house its fabrication shops as well as a newly remodeled space for corporate training, immersive BIM coordination and "big room" teaming.
