Event Details:

Palomar’s award-winning Maintenance & Operations (M&O) Buildings will debut to the public with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and opportunities to get a firsthand look at the complex that Engineering News-Record Magazine named a national “Best-of-the-Best” project in Green Design.

M&O will be the first community college building in the world to earn Living Building Petal certification, and was designed to achieve the equivalent of LEED Platinum status. On the average day it will generate 105 percent of its own energy demand, making it a Zero Net Energy building.

The grand opening ceremony will conclude with photo opportunities with Palomar College administrators and distinguished guest speakers as well as VIP attendees. Tours and refreshments will follow.

Directions and parking:

The M&O Building is located off West Mission Road between Las Posas Road and Comet Circle. Parking will be available without a permit in Lot 15 during the hours of the event.
