20 M Street

Sustainability

LEED® GOLD

20 M Street was the first office building in Washington DC to pursue and achieve GOLD certification, incorporating the most efficient and state-of-the-art design strategies for newly constructed buildings.

VENTILATION

The building provides increased ventilation, pulling fresh air into the building and carefully filtering internal spaces, thereby greatly improving indoor air quality.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY

CO2 monitoring, humidification controls, air flow monitoring and low-emitting materials ensure a healthier work environment than non-LEED buildings.

CO2 REDUCTION

A significant reduction in CO2 emissions compared to non-LEED® office buildings through the use of energy and water efficient equipment in the central plant. This reduces the strain on Earth's most precious resource, water.

GREEN ENERGY

100% of the energy consumed comes from renewable energy sources providing the highest environmental benefit.

STORM-WATER RETENTION

100% of storm-water from the roof is collected in a 17,000 gallon cistern and used to supplement the water used in the cooling tower, reduces the strain on Earth's most precious resource, water.

RECYCLE

As a model of green entrepreneurship and as an agent of change, building management collects and disposes of recyclables such as paper, plastic, glass, aluminum and other materials.

GREEN CLEANING

The building utilizes the latest green cleaning practices that eliminates the use of harmful chemicals.

RECYCLED CONTENT

20% of the building materials used in the base building construction were made from post-industrial recycled content, helping to reduce environmental and social impacts.

REGIONAL MATERIALS

20% of the building materials used in the base building were extracted, harvested and manufactured locally.

DAYLIGHT/VIEWS

Tenant are encouraged to maximize the use of daylight and views in design of interior spaces. By optimizing the amount of natural daylight in the workspaces, businesses improve working conditions and boost employee wellness, satisfaction and morale.

BUILDING EXTERIOR

A highly efficient glazing system with low-e glass keeps the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Improving temperature and humidity control provides a comfortable working environment.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL

The below-grade parking and light-colored, heat-reflective roof system minimize the building's contribution to heat-island effect and relieve the cooling energy load during hot summer months.

OPTIMIZE ENERGY PERFORMANCE

The building’s high performance glass, energy efficient lighting, air conditioning controls, and free cooling systems contribute to the buildings superior energy performance. A computerized Building Management System allows for monitoring and control of energy use.

WATER EFFICIENCY

The use of water-efficient fixtures in the building reduces the demand for water needed to operate the building by 33% compared to non-LEED office buildings.
