Hines has undertaken retrofitting projects to increase the energy efficiency of the building, resulting in 101 Second Street earning the ENERGY STAR in 2006, 2007, and 2008. For example, occupancy sensors are used in tenant spaces and as part of the specifications on tenant improvement upgrades. The energy management team upgraded the computerized control for the property's lighting, a system that both reduces lighting usage outside of normal building hours and provides an after-hours dial-up feature for tenant requests. For climate control, Hines uses variable frequency drives (VFDs) on each air handling unit and their fan motors, on the lead primary domestic water pump, and on the cooling tower fan motors. These drives reduce unnecessary energy consumption by enabling the air handling units and cooling tower fans to run at levels commensurate with actual demand.
Hines has been recognized with multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm's participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit www.hines.com/sustainability.
