This morning, Shangri-La Construction unveiled its latest green project, Hangar 25 of the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California. It’s the first aviation hangar to receive LEED certification and boasts a bevy of environmentally-friendly features.

The 50,630-square-foot Hangar 25 produces 110% of its energy needs with the photovoltaic solar panels on its roof. That’s 400,000 kWh per year of clean energy. Hangar 25 was built using primarily recycled, locally-sourced materials, and its landscaping uses 51% less water than most buildings. Stats for Photovoltaic Solar Airports Trending: Older & Mild
