Seeking LEED certification for the 71,300 s/f, class A office building Hollister well underway on modernization of 400 Alexander Park In Princeton Area


erties is aiming to achieve LEED certification for 400 Al- exander Park. LEED elements include a new façade with enhanced energy performance, including state-of-the-art lighting glass materials and computer-controlled heating and cooling systems. These ad- vancements will transform 400 Alexander into a sustainable, bright, efficient and innovative building. The property is locat- ed within walking distance of the Princeton Junction Train Station and is just a quarter- mile from the Princeton Hyatt Hotel and U.S. Route 1. The Ho l l i s t e r pr o j e c t team includes Kieran Fla- nagan , project executive; Jon Schoenleber , project manager; Vincent DeCaro , assistant project manager; Allen McNeil , superinten- dent, and Gina Cost , project coordinator. n mance contracting is a project delivery method that provides measurable business results to support strategic business objectives with reduced or eliminated capital funding re- quirements. Upgrades to the four DFS buildings include ventilation air optimization, energy ef- ficient fume hood retrofits, installation of redundant labo- ratory exhaust system, controls system optimization and chilled water plant improvements. The project team also replaced the heating plant in the Central laboratory in Richmond and the Eastern laboratory in Norfolk and installed a small sum- mertime boiler in the Roanoke lab to improve heating plant performance and reset the life cycle. To help make sure that updated systems continue to run at optimal efficiency, DFS has incorporated an energy performance offering that pairs expertise from a services team with ongoing data monitoring. n

tapped Hollister Construc- tion to breathe new life into a commercial property with tremendous potential,” said Jon Schoenleber , project manager for Hollister. “Lo- cated in a thriving community next door to Princeton, 400 Alexander Park will quickly attract a wide variety of busi- nesses looking for modern, sustainable space.” Renovation of the four-story office building on Alexander Rd. is slated for completion in early 2016. The exterior work includes a new glass curtainwall and the interior work entails a new two-story atrium lobby, new elevator cabs, and a new HVAC and building management system. The modernization effort at 400 Alexander Park was de- signed by Margulies Hoelzli Architecture. In addition, Woodmont Prop-

est Windsor, NJ — Hollister Construction Ser-

vices is currently perform- ing a complete renovation of 400 Alexander Park in West Windsor. Selected by Wood- mont Properties , Hollister is overhauling the interior and exterior of the property, and seeking LEED certification for the 71,300 s/f, class A office building. Hollister performed capital improvements to 500 Plaza Dr., a 450,000 s/f class A office tower in the Meadowlands market, transforming it into a modern, headquarters-qual- ity office tower. Another key project is the recent comple- tion of Langan Engineering’s corporate headquarters in Parsippany. In this project, an entire floor was gutted and transformed into a 77,000 s/f state-of-the-art office facility. R i chmond , Va — Trane , a global provider of indoor solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand , presented its Energy Efficiency Leader Award to the Virginia Department of Forensic Science (DFS) . DFS was chosen as the 2015 award recipient due to its outstanding commitment to implementing best practices in energy efficiency and sus- tainability. The award was presented at the DFS Central Laboratory in Richmond. Virgina Trane is recognizing DFS, a nationally accredited forensic laboratory system, for sustain- ably improving the air quality within its Richmond, Norfolk, Roanoke and Manassas facili- ties, and helping increase em- ployee comfort and productiv- ity while reducing the state’s environmental impact. DFS leaders expect that the improvements, when complet- ed later this year, will reduce energy consumption by over 40 percent and save more than

“Hollister has an excellent track record of success in the execution and delivery of construction projects of this magnitude. We are delight- ed to be working again with Chris Johnson and his team

on transforming this building into a state-of-the-art, LEED- qualified office building in a premier location,” said Eric Witmondt , CEO of Woodmont Properties. “Woodmont Pr ope r t i es

$1 million of taxpayer dollars in annual energy and operat- ing costs. The project also sup- ports Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s 2014 Virginia Energy Plan on reducing energy consumption in state buildings and his Ex- ecutive Order 31 which directs state agencies to reduce their electricity consumption in state buildings by 15 percent by 2017. Improvements to Dave Regnery, president, HVAC North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Trane, pres- ents the award to Linda Jackson, DFS director.

Linda Jackson describes upgrades to the Central Laboratory at the Virginia Department of Forensic Science to Dave Regnery and Kenny Bolin.

Four Buildings Upgrades were needed in the four buildings to minimize energy demand and consump- tion, to update heating plants at the Roanoke, Richmond and Norfolk facilities and to ensure building exhaust redundancy in the Richmond facility. DFS provides forensic ser- vices to more than 400 law enforcement agencies in the Commonwealth of Virginia

while remaining independent of any of them. DFS funded the improve- ments with a performance contract via the Department of General Services energy services company program for public bodies of the Common- wealth. The performance con- tract allowed DFS to use future energy and operational savings to finance the infrastructure improvements up front. Perfor-
