Washington Square

Sustainability

LEED® SILVER

Washington Square incorporates the use of green initiatives and sustainable practices to affirm the owners’ commitment to preserving the earth’s most precious resources.

VENTILATION

The building provides increased ventilation, pulling fresh air into the building to ensure that the indoor air quality maintained at all times

GREEN ENERGY

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

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.

CO2 REDUCTION

The building systems are optimized to ensure we can reduce CO2 emissions compared to non-LEED® office buildings reducing the strain on Earth's most precious resource.

MATERIALS

50% of the materials used in building renovation projects must meet stringent environmental requirements, including the use of post-industrial recycled content or materials extracted, harvested and manufactured locally. Tenants are encouraged to do the same in the design and construction of interiors.

DAYLIGHT/VIEWS

Tenants are encouraged to design interiors to provide access to daylight and views. The building configuration allows for optimizing the amount of natural daylight in the workspace which improves working conditions, boosts employee wellness, satisfaction and morale.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL

The underground parking is designed to minimize the base building's contribution to heat-island effect and relieve the cooling energy load during hot summer months.

OPTIMIZE ENERGY PERFORMANCE

A computerized Energy Management System allows for monitoring and control of energy use.

WATER EFFICIENCY

The use of water-efficient fixtures in the common areas and amenity spaces reduces the amount of water used by the building.
