LRA has been involved in ongoing improvements in the center, including the renovation of the Exhibit Hall. LRA provided complete MEP engineering for the project. With the A/E team led by Onyx Architects, the renovations included upgrades to the house lighting system, lighting controls, show power distribution, and restroom facilities.
The improvements earned LRA and the design team a Pasadena Historic Preservation award. The aesthetic of the space is maintained while bringing much needed modernization to accommodate new exhibitors from around the world.
More recently, LRA provided engineering for upgrades to the Exhibit Hall's HVAC and Electrical systems, including:
- DDC controls
- Compliance with current ventilation requirements
- CO2 monitoring
- Tie-in to the district heating and cooling system.
- Electrical service upgrade for the Exhibit Hall / Auditorium complex.
