Hines is the property manager for Compuware World Headquarters, a landmark 16-story, one million-square-foot office complex located in downtown Detroit, adjacent to the city center Campus Martius Park. Designed by Rossetti Associates and Hamilton Anderson Associates, Compuware World Headquarters is noted for its striking exterior--including a multi-story portal on the fa?ade crowned by a dramatic structural arc. Inside, the building is distinguished by a full-height atrium with a cascading, 16-story water feature. Compuware employees also enjoy an on-site fitness center, a day-care facility, and convenient dining and retail opportunities.


Compuware World Headquarters earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance largely as a result of an original design emphasizing energy efficiency. For example, an under-floor air distribution system throughout the building offers extremely efficient year-round HVAC performance, while variable frequency drives (VFDs) installed throughout the HVAC infrastructure help to ensure that HVAC equipment operates at levels commensurate with actual demand. On the lighting side, high-efficiency lamps are employed throughout, with integrated occupancy sensors helping to reduce unnecessary lighting operation. Another factor that helped this building qualify for the ENERGY STAR is the active involvement of building managers in monitoring and optimizing energy consumption throughout the property.


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
