Primera’s 60-story Comcast Innovation and Technology Center project in Philadelphia has earned LEED Platinum certification via the United States Green Building Council’s LEED for Commercial Interiors v2009. The new 1, 121-foot mix-used tower is the tallest in the State of Pennsylvania and functions as a dedicated home for Comcast’s growing workforce of technologists, engineers, and software architects.
The overall project included new office space and NBC10 Studios. Both projects earned 85 points surpassing the 80-point minimum for Platinum designation. Some of the many highlights of these projects included exemplary performance in energy and water savings, significant reductions in lighting power density, and a focus on healthy indoor spaces. In addition, the project earned an innovation credit for a comprehensive focus on biophilic design principles throughout the building. This is a great accomplishment that Comcast, NBC, and the entire project team should be proud of.
Primera provided LEED Fundamental (EAp1) and Enhanced (EAc2) Commissioning Services through Built Ecology at WSP USA for the $1.5 billion Foster + Partners-designed tower.
