Jensen Talks Trends, Energy During Roundtable

Office buildings are often technologically complex, so it’s always good to gather experienced engineers to discuss present trends and future possibilities in these important spaces.

Tyler Jensen was part of a roundtable discussing “Designing Efficient Office Buildings With Visual Appeal” for CSE magazine. Jensen cited the importance of net zero office buildings while noting that the biggest trend he sees is that companies are using their workplaces to differentiate themselves and to create competitive advantage. “They are a means to attract and retain top talent and increase productivity,” he said. ESD will move into new offices in the iconic Willis Tower in April.
