The Desert Living Center at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve

The Las Vegas Springs Preserve was a 188 acre, $250 million project built to engage visitors with the area’s history while inspiring sustainability. The Springs Preserve is a community resource that helps visitors address the conservation issues they face as residents of the Mojave Desert. The buildings themselves lead by example featuring carefully designed daylighting systems that met all lighting needs during daytime hours. Integrated electric lighting systems feature daylight and occupancy sensor controls that keep the lights off when they are not needed. The Desert Living Center (DLC) was the first LEED platinum rated project in the State of Nevada and is the centerpiece of the Springs Preserve.
