Coach’s global headquarters, occupied in May 2016, includes showroom space, offices, larger conference rooms, kitchen, private terrace, data center, and 40,000 sq ft design studio. The building has floor-to-ceiling glass and column free layouts which permit views and natural daylighting throughout its high density office layout.

Vidaris’ energy modeling for the entire Hudson Yards development, and in particular for Tower C at 10 Hudson Yards, offered great synergy for this project. Energy efficiency measures included:
•chilled water coil in data rooms, in addition to condenser water coils
•high efficiency lighting, with extensive daylight dimming and occupancy sensors

Vidaris’ energy modeling was cofunded by NYSERDA. Features supported by Vidaris’ sustainability consulting include:
•Over 35% water use reduction achieved through installation of low-flow toilets, urinals, lavatories, showers and pantry faucets.
•A measurement and verification program optimizes water and energy use.
•Indoor Air Quality measures include best management practices during construction, low-emitting adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, furniture and monitoring of outside air rates.
