 (3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Oakland, CA -  August 9, 2011 - The 1333 Broadway Building, a ten-story office building located in Oakland, California and managed by CIM Group, Inc., has been awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED®-EB O+M) Silver Certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). This certification recognizes that 1333 Broadway has implemented continuous sustainability improvement measures guided by LEED-EB. Leonardo Academy was the LEED consultant for this project supporting this successful achievement. 

According to Don Rogers, Property Manager for CIM, “I was a little surprised that of the oldest of the properties I manage, this was the smoothest process. And we achieved Silver certification too!”
 
The plan for 1333 Broadway was to attempt Certified level of certification within the LEED-EB O+M 2009 rating system. However, the close proximity of the property to public transportation access, both by rail and bus, not only made earning all 15 points for Sustainable Sites: Alternative Commuting Transportation a possibility, it pushed the project into Silver Certified range.
 
Project Highlights:
  • Earned all 15 points for alternative commuting, plus one additional regional priority credit

  • Implemented a green cleaning program in the building, resulting in an 84% compliant purchasing rate for cleaning products

  • Achieved an ENERGY STAR score of 83, making them eligible for the ENERGY STAR Label

  • Diverted 59% of the building’s waste stream through a revised waste reduction and recycling program, earning one additional point for regional priority

  • 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
