Atlantic Avenue Apartments by Dattner Architects with Steven Winter Associates

“The Perry Avenue Building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard was a pilot project for LEED core and shell construction. E4’s help was essential for moving the project through the LEED registration process. They handled the collection of the documentation and the submittal of the documentation to the USGBC. Pamela Lippe and her staff were very collaborative and good communicators—very enthusiastic and open-minded about exploring different options. When the decision was first made to register it as a LEED project, we got them on board right away because we knew of them from having worked on parallel projects.”

Steven Winter Associates was the sustainability consultant for the Atlantic Avenue Apartments. The company is actually retained directly by Habitat for Humanity, the client, and they participated in all stages, from the green charrette to strategizing how to make the building green by doing the energy modeling through the construction period. This project was submitted to the USGBC under LEED for Homes, aiming for LEED Gold. They administered the LEED for Homes application, and we worked very closely in strategizing what credits they would go after.”

“At 11 Times Square, our Green team included the owner, Plaza Construction, Viridian—the LEED filing consultant—Cosentini Associates, and ourselves. We were aiming for LEED Gold certification, which for a speculative office building is a bit of a hurdle, but it’s been a good experience. Viridian contributed a lot of mind energy that helped in bird-dogging all of the various issues.”

Tecta has so much technical expertise. We were able to let them take the lead in certain areas. There was a lot of back and forth. They were deeply involved in both the design and the maintenance plan at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.”
