On Thursday April 19th, Adam Fisher, Senior Project Manager at CodeGreen Solutions, participated in Cushman & Wakefield’s Earth Month Speaker Series, “The New Frontier in LEED Certification.” This panel, which was simul-cast to the Cushman & Wakefield Tri-State Region, detailed the certification process for LEED 2009 for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance through the lens of the recent LEED Gold Certification at Heron Tower (70 East 55th Street, New York, NY 10022). CodeGreen Solutions managed the LEED process for this Cushman & Wakefield property from initial feasibility through final certification by the USGBC.

CodeGreen was joined on the panel by the Heron Tower property management team as well as Cushman & Wakefield managing directors in asset services. Adam served as the LEED subject matter expert, explaining to the audience of brokers and asset services professionals the steps of establishing sustainability policies, executing sustainability assessments, and measuring sustainability performance, all in the context of a LEED certification. Given his background as a Certified Energy Manager, Adam also detailed opportunities as a part of the LEED certification process to achieve points while identifying energy and operational efficiency opportunities through ASHRAE Energy Audits or Existing Building Commissioning studies.

CodeGreen is proud to work with the team at Cushman & Wakefield to support this great achievement. CodeGreen has managed the LEED certification of over 55 million square feet of property across the country and provided energy benchmarking and analysis to over 330 million square feet of property.
