Princeton University, 701 Carnegie Center
|Location:||West Windsor, NJ|
|Architect:||KSS and Kling Stubbins|
Princeton University’s department of the Treasury and Information Technology occupies the office, with a 15-year lease. The building is comprised of administrative offices, collaborative work areas, flexible A/V conference rooms, conference/training rooms, a gym, cafeteria, and also outdoor seating area. Vidaris collaborated with the architects KSS (for Princeton) and Kling Stubbins (for Boston Properties, the developer) to achieve sustainability features.
The building maximizes daylight and views in all occupied spaces by using floor-to-ceiling high-performance glazing, and open office layout – all enclosed offices are located in interior spaces. Other building features include Energy Star appliances, plumbing fixtures with 40% water-savings, and secure bicycle storage.
Vidaris' analysis of the energy use of the building projected 20.7% energy savings over the ASHRAE 90.1-2004 Appendix G baseline. Energy efficiency measures also include low-density lighting with occupancy sensors, high efficiency, evaporatively cooled rooftop DX units, demand control ventilation, and electronically commutated motors (ECM) for fan powered VAV boxes.
