Increasing The Green in Buildings & Facilities

Guardian's Impact On The World Of Green!
The world of green building is maturing from talk of wonky equipment and energy efficiency into the health of its occupants.
In fact, the environmentally friendly bandwagon has rolled itself into the daily vernacular so much that for office tenants, sustainable features are now an expectation and not simply a question mark.
“Environmental standards are still important to tenants. It is more of a given now than a topic of conversation,” says Bruce Mosler, chairman of global brokerage at Cushman & Wakefield. But these features have to be seamlessly embedded within an otherwise attractive building or it will prove a challenge to lease.
Green building boom is pumping billions into US economy and retrofits are fueling the trend

Similarly, the president of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Jimmy Kuhn, says, “It matters if you ask the right person in the company, but I don’t believe anyone is making decisions here based on green. It’s still about rent and efficiencies and location.”
Building owners and architects are also working on the next frontiers of environmental leadership, which include engaging tenants to make healthy choices in their own spaces.
These include incorporating natural designs through “biophilia” (plants and nature) while general well-being and new LEED certifications are becoming part of the picture, Mosler says.
“It is also about health and wellness along with phenomenal design,” explains Melissa Burch, general manager for New York at the Australia-based Lend Lease. “How do you improve lives? It’s not just by having more efficient fixtures, but by making connections with nature to improve people’s lifestyles. That is the new movement around sustainability.”

Did you know Guardian Offers Carpet Cleaning?

Why do you need regular carpet cleaning?

Invest a small amount in carpet cleaning today and the returns are ten-fold tomorrow. Every time you clean your carpets it feels like a rejuvenation. Years of accumulated dust and deep-down dirt is lifted up and washed away after a single cleaning, giving your carpets a fresh start and a new beginning.
We use the latest high power hot-water extraction cleaning system plus the best eco-friendly cleaning solution available on the market.  Our carpet cleaning system is fuel efficient which significantly reduces our carbon footprint and allows us to pass those savings on to you.



Besides your carpets being visibly cleaner they’re completely sanitized down to the tiniest fiber. Customers are often surprised to learn their carpets were actually acting as a filter, trapping damaging air pollutants like pollen, fungi, chemicals, bacteria, cigarette smoke tars and residues that you would otherwise be breathing in and are not always visible to the human eye.

Guardian specializes in high quality commercial cleaning services that promote a healthy, clean and productive work environment in your office, facility and residential building.  Our goal is to provide the best carpet cleaning service regardless if you’re on the first floor or the thirtieth floor without compromising quality. #GuardianJanitorial

Passage of NYC Legislation Will Bring Greener City Buildings to the Big Apple

Reposting
Passage of NYC Legislation Will Bring Greener City Buildings to the Big Apple
The New York City Council passed two pieces of legislation this week that will help the Big Apple take big steps toward meeting its goal to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050.

Together, the two bills, 701-A and 721-A, will require that most new and substantially renovated city-owned buildings reduce energy use by 50 percent and meet the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Gold standard. (Residential buildings will have to comply with the New York City overlay of the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria, another impressive environmental framework.)
The mayor will also have to submit a plan to ensure that, by 2030, city-owned capital projects will be designed and built to the super-efficient Passive House standard. (For some additional information on the legislation's specifics, see the blog from our friends at Urban Green Council.) Taken together, this new legislation, which Mayor de Blasio is expected to sign soon, creates standards for what will be among the most energy-efficient municipal buildings anywhere in the country.
This development is a big deal for several reasons: The first is that the City of New York has a huge real estate portfolio that makes up about 5 percent of the city's total building stock. And that building stock is responsible for nearly three quarters of the city's total carbon pollution. So reductions in city buildings' energy use will, in and of themselves, take a decent-sized chunk out of New York City's total carbon emissions.
But even more important is that these ambitious standards will teach New York's design and construction industry how to build to a much higher level of energy performance. By helping to jumpstart that learning process with this legislation, city government is leading by example and helping to bring high-performance buildings into the mainstream, thereby multiplying the legislation's beneficial effects.
New York is also truly a focal point for climate policy, as other cities look to New York's continued leadership on this issue. That's been the case for several years now, particularly since New York City adopted the groundbreaking Greener, Greater Buildings Plan in 2009. By setting new standards for energy savings in municipal buildings, the New York City Council is not only ensuring tremendous benefits here at home, but has passed legislation that can play an important role in cutting carbon pollution nationwide. #DonnaDeCostanzo
