SUSTAINABILITY

One Horizon Center has been designed with the highest sustainable design features that will make it a healthier, more productive place to work, with a smaller energy footprint. One Horizon Center is designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification.

The general sustainability strategies being targeted for the project are outlined below:

Energy

  • Dual-pane high-performance glass lets in natural light and cuts heat and noise gain
  • Chillers with Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) optimizes chilled water flow thereby reducing operating costs
  • VAV boxes in HVAC system optimizes air flow and minimizes operating costs
  • Energy demand met through natural gas based power source
  • Atleast 14% reduction in energy demand compared to a code- standard building

Indoor Air Quality

  • CO2 sensors ensure healthy levels of fresh air in the tenant premises
  • CO sensors in basements maintain indoor air quality
  • External AHUs with UV filtration prevent infiltration of harmful microbes into the on-floor air conditioning systems
  • Low-emitting materials will be specified for paints, carpets, sealants and composite wood products

Water

  • Extensive stormwater management program
  • On-site sewage treatment plant
  • Water efficient landscaping techniques
  • Low-flow fixtures and automatic sensors
