Triangle Building gets LEED Gold certification

East West Partners' most recently completed development The Triangle Building has been awarded LEED Gold certification.

The building received the majority of its LEED points for its core and shell construction, which covers base building elements such as structure, envelope and building-level systems, combined with LEED design elements for energy efficiency. 

"We are honored to be recognized with LEED Gold certification for a building that is one of the most distinctive in all of downtown Denver," says Chris Frampton, managing partner at East West. "The Triangle Building has brought innovation to the community, and we are thrilled that it is now recognized for being resource efficient and for reducing stress on the environment."

The 10-story office building incorporates innovative energy strategies and building techniques to maximize comfort and minimize waste. Storm water is captured and treated for use in the municipal system, allowing for 50 percent reduction in landscaping water use and 30 percent reduction in building water use. Oversized glass windows allow for plenty of sunshine and natural warmth, and the overall building construction fetures the most efficient combination of glass and metal to minimize energy usage.

Twenty percent of materials used on the project are recycled, with 10 percent of materials regionally sourced. Fifty percent of construction waste on the overall project was able to be recycled.
