A great team efforts makes a client very happy

Our team has been the base building engineer for this 700,000 sq. ft. building for many years. Projects that we have completed include developing Base Building engineering design standards, designing the replacement of air handlers and the cooling towers. We have also completed over 50,000 sq. ft. of interior fit-out work.  

One of the most significant projects we have completed was overall energy efficiency improvements to the building, which helped the owner, TIAA-CREF to earn over $650,000 in annual energy savings. In addition to the capital savings, the project earned the highly coveted “Renovated Building of the Year” award at the annual Building Owners & Managers Association in Greater Boston. In order to win in this category, the building needs to have an ownership willing to provide the capital for the improvements and then the project team needs to work closely together and coordinate with the tenants in order to complete all of the work required.

It always feels good to have happy clients, and following the project award, the General Manager/Associate Director of 99 High Street, Bruce Clifford from Jones Lang LaSalle acknowledged our team in a really nice way, saying “…to support the [building management] and ownership’s vision, all of you have responded in fine fashion never saying “NO” to any work requested. Due to the timing of the boiler project, final preparations for the building tour were a little dicey, but we made it, thanks to all of you. Today, I am proud of all we have accomplished together and that is a testament to the exceptional people we have working on this building on a daily basis! Please know that you…make a difference every day at 99 High Street! Let’s continue to move forward with the team approach…
