The headquarters of The New York Times Company is a 52-story, 1.5 million gross square feet commercial office building constructed in 2007, located in Manhattan, New York. The Times Company occupies floors 2 through 21 totaling 628,000 gross square feet.
During the original design phase The Times Company collaborated with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to develop and implement innovative energy efficiency measures (EEMs) for the underfloor air distribution (UFAD) system, automated shading and lighting controls. The EEMs were designed to create a high quality, comfortable workplace environment for their employees while minimizing energy use, demands on the utility grid, and greenhouse gas emissions. The HVAC system had already been designed at that time, so additional efficiency measures were not able to be produced.
In 2010, The Times Company once again collaborated with LBNL to evaluate how the efficiency measures implemented were performing.
