Gallery: World’s First LEED Platinum Airplane Hanger

Key sustainable features include a solar array on the roof that produces 119% of the Hanger’s power needs, a combination of High-Volume/Low Speed fans to move air throughout the Hanger without using too much energy, and extensive use of daylighting opportunities limiting the need for artificial light during working hours.

Since its doors opened, Hanger 25 has become somewhat of a sustainable landmark and educational tool in the City of Burbank. In 2009 the hanger was the chosen location for a sustainable building roundtable discussion on the future of sustainable building and the green collar economy led by former President Bill Clinton, founder of the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Climate Initiative.
