When it decided to move into the Willis Tower, ESD wanted to focus on designing its new space into a healthier and more energy-efficient environment by pursuing Fitwel and LEED v4 certification.
Those attending the Greenbuild are invited to tour ESD’s new global headquarters during the “Designing for Yourself, A&E Office Environments” tour on Saturday, Nov. 17 beginning at 1 p.m. Led by Tim Zelazny and Samantha Davidson of ESD Energy+Eco, the tour will discuss the challenges that were overcome, the utility incentive dollars awarded for exceeding code with LEED, and the unique products installed to increase the project’s environmental benefits.
