UCLA Luskin Conference Center sets a high bar for hospitality sustainability, features Wausau’s windows, doors and curtainwall

The recently opened University of California Los Angeles’ Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center (UCLA Luskin Conference Center) sets a new standard for conference centers and hotels, not just in a campus setting, but for the hospitality industry as a whole. Last year, the $162 million building earned LEED® Platinum certification and is considered one of the most sustainable hotels in the United States. Supporting UCLA Luskin Conference Center’s sustainability goals, acoustic performance and access to natural light were key contributors. Windows dominate the conference center’s lobby and meeting rooms, flooding the interior with sunshine. Wausau Window and Wall Systems provided high-performance windows, terrace doors and a curtainwall to help manage exterior noise and interior comfort, while contributing to the building’s overall energy efficiency.
