Sonic Automotive has made a commitment to sustainability and is pursuing LEED certification for all their new EchoPark® dealerships. Over the last two years Sonic had trusted EA Energy to manage twelve dealerships in achieving their LEED certifications. Three of twelve have achieved certification, while the rest are in various stages of design and construction.
EA Energy worked with the design teams of these projects to help develop the building prototype and to prepare standard design documents and specifications that meet LEED requirements. During construction EA Energy worked with the contractor to confirm materials being selected for the buildings and methods of construction adhere to LEED standards.
Throughout the design and construction process, EA Energy took the lead keeping LEED certification in the forefront of priorities, an effort that lead to continuous success in achieving LEED certification.
EA Energy assisted in documentation of these projects as well by tracking and documenting LEED requirements for the architect and engineering team. This resulted in fewer LEED comments and on schedule LEED reviews.
