A brief description of the sustainable operations and maintenance policy/program and/or O+M rating system(s) used:
LEED O+M rating system. All buildings with new construction or renovation are built to LEED O+M Silver or LEED O+M Certified standards, although some are pending certification. Those pending are not counted. Central King Building - LEED O+M Gold Building The broad project goals include the modernization of a 105-year-old building - constructed in 1912 - with major updates to the plumbing, heating, and cooling systems to meet both NJIT standards and LEED requirements. By utilizing high energy-efficient building systems components, the project reduces operational costs for NJIT and decreases the life cycle cost of the building. Such components include low watts per square foot lighting load calculations, occupancy and daylight dimming lighting controls, and low flow plumbing fixtures. The building achieves: 40 percent water use reduction 30 percent reduction in overall lighting power 30 percent (by cost) of recycled content in construction materials and furniture 40 percent (by cost) of materials manufactured within 500 miles of the project Access to views for 90 percent of all regularly occupied spaces Over 90 percent of equipment and appliances are ENERGY STAR certified The architectural design capitalizes on the building’s interior courtyard configuration by programming the inner ring with working height counters, seats, and collaborative work surfaces. Users enjoy an atmosphere that promotes unplanned interactions, where connections can happen between the complementary perspectives of different disciplines in a daylight-filled circulation zone.
