Westlake Tower, CB Richard Ellis (CBRE)
The Westlake Tower sits at the center of it all in Seattle. It is the southern end of the world famous monorail and shares a parking garage with one of downtown’s retail shopping destinations: the Westlake Center. The property owned by TIAA Cref and managed by CBRE is currently going through a dramatic repositioning to become a premier office tower—with a secondary goal of being awarded EnergyStar certification.
CBRE turned to Resound Energy as its energy service partner to assess the facility and provide a plan to improve common area lighting. Resound Energy laid out a two stage plan for CBRE including a 560 fixture LED retrofit that Resound Energy completed in late 2012 and a lighting controls project that will be completed in early 2013. The projects will collectively save CBRE’s client TIAA Cref $61,000 annually.
Virginia Mason Medical Center (VMMC) is one of America’s leading medical centers. In addition to their primary hospital in Seattle, VMMC provides care throughout the Puget Sound Region through their network of clinics.
Resound Energy and VMMC starting working together in mid-2012 with the goal of identifying opportunities at the Federal Way clinic to improve lighting efficiency and quality. Resound developed and implemented a project for VMMC that removed nearly 2,000 T12 lamps from service!
