Owned and Managed by BMS Management, INC., Millennium Tower earned the US Environmental Protection Agency's prestigious ENERGY STAR, the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior energy performance. By earning the ENERGY STAR, Millennium Tower is using about 35% less energy than average buildings, while still providing quality service and comfort to occupants. 


BMS Management, Inc. earned the ENERGY STAR at Millennium Tower as the result of energy efficient features put in place to conserve energy.  Examples included motion sensors for lighting through-out tenant spaces and common areas as well as other low use areas.  The building and garage have been retrofitted with electronic ballasts and high efficiency fluorescent lamps.  Additionally, compact fluorescent lamps are being used in down lights.  Timers or photo cells are utilized to assist in conserving cost on exterior lighting as well as the building lobby and common corridors. 


Another source of considerable energy savings is the HVAC System.  The building's main HVAC system is operated through a Direct Digital Control (DDC) system allowing for optimal starts and stops of the building's 22 air handler units, chillers and associated variable air volume boxes (VAV's).  In addition, approximately 55% of these VAV's have been retrofitted with DDC controls allowing for direct and immediate response to tenant calls and tighter control of the overall operation to assist in conserving energy. 

Millennium Tower's staff, contracted and employed is educated in the value of energy conservation, helping to create a cooperative atmosphere with a shared goal of saving energy.
