-- Benchmarking 75 State's utility usage using EPA's Portfolio Manager. Brookfield Properties understands that building managers cannot manage what they do not measure.
As a local winner of the Building Owners & Managers Association (BOMA) Boston's The Office Building of the Year (TOBY) award in 2006 and a regional winner of the BOMA MAC (Mid-Atlantic Region) TOBY in 2006 and 2007, the 75 State Street property team knows the importance of achieving superior energy performance. The Brookfield Properties team has implemented many energy efficiency strategies, which have contributed to 75 State Street achieving the prestigious ENERGY STAR. These efforts include:
HVAC systems are controlled by a centralized automation system, which, together with the building's engineering staff, ensures the effective operation of the building's mechanical systems. The combination of the trained professional engineers and state-of-the-art technology strike a strategic balance between efficiency and customer comfort. In addition, the building's main lobby and exterior lighting is controlled by a programmable lighting control system. This system enables the property team to variably control lobby lumen output dependent on outside light and the lobby's need.
The Brookfield Properties team performs routine, comprehensive environmental reviews and upgrades at its properties. In addition, renovations are executed with the most environmentally friendly products available. The company's goal is to provide office space of the highest quality for its tenants while concurrently reducing operating costs, which is why staff have made energy efficiency a top priority.
Brookfield Properties is committed to owning, developing, and managing premier office properties that are sustainable, environmentally friendly, and technologically advanced. Brookfield Properties and the 75 State Street building participate in a number of energy conservation awareness programs. Brookfield Properties and the 75 State Street team participated in the City of Boston's inaugural "Lights Out Boston" Campaign held during the fall of 2008 bird migration season and again in the spring of 2009. The team also took part in the 2009 Earth Hour program in conjunction with the City of
Brookfield Properties regularly communicates its efforts to its tenants and employees, to not only promote the hard work of the property management team, but to encourage all building occupants to adopt and implement energy efficiency initiatives. In late 2008 and early 2009, staff at 75 State Street began efforts to obtain LEED certification, which places a very high emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability. The company's participation in that program has led to the development of a LEED/ENERGY STAR page on our building Web site. This new page will be available to our tenants and the general public in the coming months. The property team also makes use of the screens located in the building elevators to promote energy efficiency efforts and significant milestones in the company's efforts to achieve these goals.
"At Brookfield Properties, we believe that making a positive contribution to our environment and the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our operating practices. Through our active participation in the ENERGY STAR program, we are thrilled that 75 State Street has earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance. It validates our sustainability and energy conservation efforts."-- Robert M. Brierley, Vice President, Operations - Boston, Brookfield Properties
