Transforming Charles Park through Sustainability

The Completed Project Will be LEED Gold, Fitwell and Wired Score Certified

Improvements include installation of ultra-efficient mechanical systems featuring energy recovery, low flow plumbing fixtures, LED light fixtures and an automated Building Management System to manage automated temperature and window shading controls. New rooftop equipment will be enclosed or screened to mitigate noise and vibration from the units. A new high-albedo (aka white roof) is being installed to reduce solar gain in the building.
