WASHINGTON, DC-Market Square, a multi-tenant 703,997-square-foot mixed-use project in the District, has received Silver LEED certification for EBOM (Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance). It is one of a handful of buildings in the District that have been focusing on this particular standard in hopes of realizing better efficiencies in operations.

“The trend for building owners to go for EBOM is accelerating,” Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers’ Evan Tyroler tells GlobeSt.com. “We are involved in numerous projects for EBOM” and expect to have other clients achieve certification next year.

Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers helped Edison Place a 400,000-square-foot building located at 701 9th St., achieve Gold LEED EBOM certification this past summer – the first designation for the District.

EBOM certification for Market Square, located at 701 and 801 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, and owned by an affiliate of Beacon Capital Partners, LLC was a more complex process, though, Tyroler says as it is a multi tenant, multi use complex that includes residential condo units. These were not part of the certification.

Retro-commissioning of Market Square included installing new lighting, high efficiency motors, and operational adjustments to the energy management system. Water efficiency upgrades resulted in a savings to date of over 1.7-million gallons of potable water.
