Berkeley Lab Confirms Big Energy Savings at The Times Building

Designing a building holistically, and making sure that its components and systems work together according to design intent, can pay big dividends in energy savings and occupant satisfaction, according to a study by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory of the performance of The New York Times Building in New York City.

Measured results from the post-occupancy evaluation showed a 24 percent reduction in annual electricity use and 51 percent reduction in heating energy use, compared to expectations from a design that just met the prescriptive energy-efficiency code in effect at the time of construction (ASHRAE 90.1-2001), and a 25 percent reduction in peak electric demand. In addition, a significant fraction of occupants indicated a high level of satisfaction with the overall building and its design features.
