One World Trade Center achieves LEED Gold certification

LEED Gold Core and Shell certification thanks to a number of advanced energy- and water-saving technologies including elevators that produce energy through regenerative braking, low-energy equipment such as variable-speed fans and pumps, low-E glass coating that reduces heat gain, and a high-tech building management system that optimizes energy use and indoor air quality. The tower’s high-tech skin also allows over 90 percent of the office areas to be lit by daylight to save electricity. Water usage was minimized through a grey water system that collects and utilizes harvested rainwater, allowing the building to use 41 percent less water than the LEED® 2.0 baseline.
