PROJECT TEAM: Vanbarton Group, Schnitzer West, McKinstry, O’Brien360

Built in 1973, 901 Fifth recently earned LEED-EB SilverTM Certification by undergoing a major improvement project that enables staff to closely monitor and control outside air to the building systems. Outside air flows are optimized based on occupancy, temperature, and both indoor and outdoor air quality. This has significantly improved overall EUI and energy costs: Energy Use Intensity (EUI) as of May 2019 was 62.4 Btu./sf/yr, and the carbon impact is 0.0065 Metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2e)/square foot, far below regional and national averages.
