CASSIDY TURLEY OVERSEES LEED CERTIFICATION FOR 2.5 MILLION SQUARE FEET

WASHINGTON — Cassidy Turley has handled a year-long project to achieve LEED Silver Certification for 10 separate office properties owned by affiliates of Beacon Capital Partners. The buildings encompass approximately 2.5 millions square feet, all of which are located in Washington, D.C. and Virginia.

Cassidy Turley oversaw the day-to-day project management to qualify for LEED® for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance. The properties implemented several sustainable strategies including energy and water efficiency as well as an enhanced recycling and waste diversion program. Some of the specific features included:

  • Full building retro-commissioning for select buildings
  • Implementation of select energy conservation measures that reduced overall energy consumption across the portfolio
  • Energy audits for all buildings
  • Eight of the ten buildings have been awarded the Environmental Protection Agency’s  ENERGY STAR, the national symbol for energy efficiency and environmental protection
  • Participation in a demand response program that helps reduce the peak demand on the utility grid, benefitting utility providers, the community and the environment
  • An electronic recycling event that has diverted over 10,000 pounds of  printers, batteries, monitors and other electronic equipment from the main waste stream

Including these buildings, Beacon Capital’s portfolio now encompasses more than 18 million square feet of LEED-certified space. As part of this particular project, the buildings that achieved LEED Silver certification in Washington, D.C., included Lafayette Centre One, Two, and Three, located in the Central Business District; as well as Liberty Place, located in the East End submarket. The other properties were John Marshall III and EJ Randolph II in McLean, Va.; American Center East (pictured below) and American Center West in Vienna, Va.; 11111 Sunset Hills Rd. in Reston, Va.; and The Zachary Taylor Building in Arlington, Va.

“The certification of this ten building portfolio shows that aggressive sustainability initiatives are not only possible but can leave a long lasting improvement to our communities and environment,” said William Grillo, senior managing director with Cassidy Turley.
