Autodesk’s AEC headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts, designed by KlingStubbins and constructed by Tocci Building Co. using Building Information Modeling (BIM) and an Integrated Project Delivery contract, was certified LEED-Platinum last week by the U.S. Green Building Council. The AEC headquarters project was featured last April in a BD+C feature story on IPD.

LEED points earned on the 55,000 Class A Tenant Fit-up included green design and construction initiatives. Building systems designed in by KlingStubbins include automated building systems, automated lighting controls, daylighting controls, sound control systems, use of FSC Certified Wood and use of Low Voc adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings and carpet. During construction Tocci instituted a stringent air quality management program that included zoning select work areas for dust/particle-creating work. Prior to occupancy the building underwent and passed air quality testing to assure uncompromised air. In addition, a full cleaning and recycling program was implemented that enabled recycling of over 88% of the project’s construction waste. Achieving LEED® Platinum was one of the key success criteria set forth in the IPD contract shared by Autodesk, KlingStubbins and Tocci Building Corporation.
