VG Winter 2019 Update: Produce LA, Arts Club West Hollywood, Sunset Las Palmas Updates | We’re Hiring!



Correction: In our previous newsletter, we highlighted the La Kretz Innovation Campus project, which recently became the first building to achieve both LEED v3 Platinum in New Construction & WELL v1 Gold Core and Shell certification. We should have noted previously that the LEED consultant on the project was BuroHappold and the WELL consultant on the project was A SustainaAble Production (ASAP). Verdical Group did not consult on LEED or WELL for this project. We apologize for this error. We would like to congratulate BuroHappold, ASAP, LADWP, and the entire design and construction team on this landmark project!
