(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Oakland, CA - August 10, 2011 - The 2101 Webster Building, a 20-story office building located in Oakland, California and managed by the CIM Group, Inc., has been awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED®-EB: O+M) Certified level of Certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). This certification recognizes that 2101 Webster has implemented continuous sustainability improvement measures guided by LEED-EB. Leonardo Academy was the LEED consultant for this project supporting this successful achievement. 

2101 Webster took major steps in order to reach the goal of LEED certification. One of those steps involved having to replace the majority of the water fixtures within the building. Although this required a significant upfront cost, the water use reduction achieved not only earned all 5 points for the Water Efficiency credit 2, but provided a water use reduction of over 35% below the baseline resulting in a drop in water and sewer costs.
 
Project Highlights:
  • Earned all five points for Water Efficiency credit 2 plus an additional point for regional priority

  • Achieved an ENERGY STAR score of 82, making them eligible for the ENERGY STAR Label

  • Earned four points for ongoing commissioning efforts and the implementation of energy use reduction strategies

  • Tracked, recorded and reported greenhouse gas emissions generated by the project building and associated grounds through Leonardo Academy’s Cleaner and Greener® program

  • Diverted 81% of the building’s waste stream through a revised waste reduction and recycling program, earning one additional point for regional priority
