Skanska USA headquarters is a LEED Platinum interior on the 32nd floor of the Empire State Building, America’s most celebrated skyscraper. Skanska’s requirements included completing a LEED Platinum project for the same cost as a typical Class A office space. Taking advantage of excellent daylight and views, the design includes an under-floor air system that recovers 22 inches of ceiling height, resulting in 19% more daylight to the interiors. The office provides views for 99% of employee spaces, reduces lighting load by 35%, water use by 40%, and has resulted in a 49% savings in the cost of energy.
