650 Fifth Avenue is a commercial office complex built in 1979 located on the edge of Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. The facility is a 36-story tower with approximately 384,500 SF of conditioned space which sought LEED-EBOM green building certification from USGBC. Taitem Engineering conducted an energy use benchmarking study as well as a walk-through and capital-intensive energy auditing study using advanced energy modeling tools. Our team also provided NYC LL87 compliant retro-commissioning on the building systems. All of these services were conducted under the NYSERDA FlexTech program.
Unique features of the building include an all-pneumatic control system, high level of operator involvement in day-to-day operations and extended data logging performed as part of the commissioning.
