Veolia’s new office at 53 State Street in Boston was recently awarded LEED Gold for Commercial Interiors certification by the Green Building Certification Institute. The project, which was managed by JLL’s Project and Development Services group and constructed by JLL Construction, included a 27,440-square-foot fit out of the space.
The Veolia office, designed by Fusion Design Consultants, is highlighted by an open, flexible workspace environment, new reception area, new boardroom with integrated state-of-the-art audio visual components, and a large communal kitchen designed for company-wide gatherings.
LEED features include: water efficient plumbing fixtures that are estimated to reduce water consumption by over 35%, and lighting fixtures that reduce lighting demand by over 25%. Construction materials and finishes are comprised of nearly 25% recycled content. Nearly 35% have been sourced within a 500-mile radius of the project.
To address indoor air quality, the mechanical systems will supply 30% more outside air than required by code to ensure a complete fresh-air exchange, all done without compromising mechanical system efficiencies. The LEED consultant on the project was Brian Salazar of Entegra Development & Investment.
