Headquarters Plaza, the Class A commercial buildings in downtown Morristown with 700,000+ square feet of office space, recently received ENERGY STAR certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the East Tower of its facility. The environmentally-significant designation means the East Tower meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and ranks among the top 25 percent of buildings in its category for energy conservation.
“We are proud to have our facility recognized as one of the most environmentally-friendly, energy efficient office buildings in the state,” said Brian Fisher, a Principal at Fisher Development Associates, which developed Headquarters Plaza along with partner the Olnick Organization. “Pursuing this certification reflects our ongoing commitment to conserving resources and reducing our environmental impact.”
Headquarters Plaza is the first building in Morristown to receive ENERGY STAR certification, according to the EPA. The tower is equipped with a sophisticated energy management system designed to optimize energy efficiency while maximizing tenant comfort. High thermal comfort and efficiency, indoor air quality, lighting levels and energy performance ratings helped the building score a 79 on the ENERGY STAR rating system. That places Headquarters Plaza in the top 21st percentile in energy conservation of office buildings nationwide.
ENERGY STAR certified buildings must use 35 percent less energy and emit 35 percent less carbon dioxide than average buildings in its category. Americans reduced their energy bills by $18 billion in 2010 and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of those of 34 million vehicles by participating in the ENERGY STAR program and using ENERGY STAR certified products.
“We’re dedicated to providing our tenants at Headquarters Plaza with the best possible work environment, and part of that equation is having a modern, energy efficient infrastructure,” notes Bruce Simon, President of The Olnick Organization. “It’s both environmentally-responsible as well as an added amenity to what is already a highly-amenitized and well-serviced office complex.”
