The TIAA Betsill Building project was a six story interior upfit, which achieved the USGBC’S LEED Gold in interior design and construction. Water use was reduced by 45% in this massive building, and lighting power was reduced by 59%. Both of these were accomplished through the design and installation of efficient fixtures. In addition to the reduction of water use and lighting power, 76% of the construction waste material was kept from ending up in landfills. Mindful construction practices also accomplished the reuse of 61% of the existing interior. Overall, the design and construction of the building will tremendously help the efficiency of the buildings life cycle while reducing costs. New carpet, new restrooms and a new kitchen and servery were all installed for the employees.
