Profile: Fifty Fremont is a 42-story office tower that achieved LEED-EB: O&M Platinum and has continued to pursue new sustainability initiatives to evolve its existing urban office environment. It’s the largest multi-tenant office building to receive the rating. The building participates in comprehensive compost and recycling program and hosts a weekly farmers market. This completes the sustainability cycle, where compost leaves via the city/county program, and returns as food source.
Energy-saving strategy: Fifty Fremont earned an Energy Star rating of 96 out of 100 due to installation of energy conserving infrastructure and operational commitments to use less energy. The retrofit makes the building 52 percent more energy efficient than a similar sized office building. Additional energy use is offset through the purchase of Green-e certified power. A building management system monitors and controls the building HVAC system giving constant feedback of system operation. It optimizes major building HVAC systems such as fans, boilers and chillers resulting in greater efficiency and occupant comfort. A large lighting retrofit using highly efficient low-mercury lamps and LED technology also contributes to energy savings.
