Midcentury (un)Modern:An Environmental Analysis of the 1958-1973, Manhattan Office Building

Sponsor: New York Association for Energy Economics

Millions of square feet of commercial office buildings were built in Manhattan from the 1950s - 1970s with single-glazed curtain wall exteriors. Many still have their original, poorly performing and highly inefficient mechanical systems, little insulation, and low ceilings and tight column spacing that obstruct daylight and views. Most do not meet current wind load requirements.

This segment of the city's building stock needs to be overhauled. What to preserve and what to replace is a core consideration when thinking about how to handle growing urban populations.

The speaker will compare the relative opportunities of retrofit vs. high-performance replacement strategies, exploring three main conclusions of an in-depth analysis

Speaker: William D. Browning, Terrapin Bright Green LLC
