BPE WINS Urban Green Council EBie Awards
Congratulations to the project members from BPE, Haglid Engineering, and Avidan Management. Taking a 650,000 sf industrial building, which includes over 180,000 sf of refrigerated warehouse, consuming nearly 16,000,000 kWh annually to a Net Power Producing facility in only two years – What an accomplishment!
Quote from the award speech: “At the project’s inception, the client expressed he was having difficulty renting a 200,000 sqft space; but after we improved the building envelope and implemented the BPE energy recovery, on-site solar generation, and high-efficiency lighting, potential tenants could not believe it was the same space. Moreover, by telling potential tenants that he would provide several months of free electricity and gas, Avi sealed the deal in less than a month. Best of all, last month the facility was net power producing, so there isn’t any cost to Avi either!
Being green not only saves the environment, but also rents large spaces that would otherwise sit on the market for months, maybe even years. It’s been my philosophy that what’s good for the environment is good for the economy, and 145 Talmadge Road is the ideal example.”
