The Lyndwood Executive Center is a Class A office complex comprised of approximately 163,456 rentable square feet in two 3-story buildings, each containing 81,728 SF.  The project is located in Elkridge, Maryland, in northern Howard County.  Completed in 2002, the buildings are structural steel, with composite metal deck and masonry envelopes.  The project provides ample parking at approximately five spaces per 1,000 SF.  Practically column free floor plates enable the tenants to effectively design their space to achieve maximum coverage in the least amount of square footage possible. 


Recognizing the potential to improve Lyndwood Executive Center's energy and financial performance, Kennedy Associates Real Estate Counsel, LP ("Kennedy") directed CB Richard Ellis to proactively use the EPS's ENERGY STAR program in 2005 for the tools and resources necessary to help achieve superior energy performance.  Lyndwood Executive Center Building 1 is currently rated "84" and officially earned the Energy Star designation in November 2007.  Lyndwood Executive Center Building 2 is currently rated "85" and officially earned the ENERGY STAR designation in April 2008.


Examples of Technologies and Practices at the Lyndwood Executive Center:

?              Solar tempered insulated glass windows

?              Occupancy sensors for restroom and janitorial closet lighting

?              Programmable automatic air fresheners

?              Energy efficient lighting systems and bulbs

?              Saturday HVAC hours are now upon request.

?              Caulking joints throughout the building preventing air leaks.

?              Increased the heating set point.

Kennedy continues to request that the CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) management and engineering team take proactive steps utilizing best practices to maximize energy efficiency including:

?              Periodic review and constant tracking of energy use patterns to determine and correct energy inefficiencies

?              Examination of the EMS settings in order to ensure the building automation reflects actual needs of the tenants.  Through this process, it was discovered that the building's HVAC set point was higher than needed.  In addition, the engineer reprogrammed the system to eliminate Saturday HVAC unless requested by tenants.  The tenants were notified of this and there are no complaints.

?              Engineering regularly inspects the building to note any deficiencies that are occurring and corrects the deficiencies himself or contacts the property management team to hire a contractor for the repair.  During this process, it was discovered the building needed caulking at each window line.  This project was completed in 2007 and the scores increased.  Currently, the engineer is investigating caulking under the roof flashing in order to prevent cold/hot airflow escaping or entering the building.

?              Reached out to tenants in order to spread the word that energy efficiency is good for the bottom line as well as the environment.

?              Reminded tenants to turn off all lights and equipment at night or when not in use.

?              The janitorial staff is instructed to turn off lighting when a space is cleaned.


Other steps Lyndwood Executive Center is taking to reducing the carbon footprint:

?              The building has an extensive recycling program for tenants to recycle all paper including color paper, cardboard, junk mail, phone books, frozen dinner cardboard, etc.; as well as glass, cans, and plastics.  There are recycle bins in each tenant suite.

?              The building recycles all lighting components.

?              At Kennedy's request, the building staff, along with its contract cleaning service, instituted green cleaning chemicals rated by the US Green Building Council for all of its regularly scheduled cleaning tasks.

?              Quarterly tenant meetings introduce new ways to save on energy as well as the carbon footprint and obtain feedback on current initiatives.
