New York Times Headquarters
We provided Project and Cost Management services and gave Sustainability advice on The New York Times Headquarters which has been unofficially titled "Manhattan's Greenest Tower". Designed by Renzo Piano, the project included executive offices, cafeteria, conference centre, auditorium and what will be the largest cogeneration plant in a New York City office tower. The building achieves 90% efficiency on heating and cooling systems by use of a co-generation plant that supplies 40% of the power for the offices.
The plant has an expected 21% return on investment in approximately three years. Natural light is harvested and an advanced automatic dimming light system produces energy savings of 30%. The 52-storey tower utilises 90% recycled content structural steel and has a glazed facade. The facade provides 75% transparency and low iron double-glazed glass delivers comfortable surroundings for users.
