Environmental Benefits

Plentiful natural light

With continuous glass curtainwalls and ribbon windows, client suites are awash in sunlight throughout the work day.

Additional Features

The property includes many additional elements often associated with a green building. Environmentally friendly elements include water-saving fixtures, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, shaded parking, rainwater storage, high recycled content materials, construction waste recycling, building recycling programs, and green housekeeping.

The building also features a major 280 kW photovoltaic solar array that powers much of the common area electrical load for 300 TradeCenter. This solar plant produces more than 300,000 kilowatt hours of clean electricity annually.


Green design is beneficial to the environment and provides value to clients

High-efficiency glass, special roof and wall insulation, and efficient lighting were very important in achieving LEED Gold pre-certification for TradeCenter 128. Leasing clients enjoy the benefits of these and other energy-saving features.

Lower operating costs

Energy-efficient design and construction, premium efficiency HVAC and lighting systems, and high-performance glass contribute to energy savings.

Lower transportation costs

On-site public transportation (MBTA bus), dedicated bicycle storage, and preferred parking for low-emission vehicles support lower emission and lower cost transit options.

Improved air quality

Operable windows, upper floor balconies, and energy recovery fresh-air ventilators enhance air quality.

Health and Safety

With workplace wellness in mind, TradeCenter 128 provides frequent cleaning and disinfection of common areas during business hours. The building offers in-suite restrooms, independent HVAC systems, recently upgraded air filtration, and operable windows to allow fresh air.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken a number of steps to encourage social distancing and help reduce the spread of respiratory illness.

Precautionary signage

Signage in the building reminds visitors of important orders and precautionary measures to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread.

Elevators

Signage alerts visitors to the Commonwealth’s recommendation to maintain distance in our main elevators, in hallways, and when using our "up" and "down" stairways.

HVAC

The following actions have been taken to increase the flow of fresh air within the building:

HVAC unit filters were upgraded to a higher level of filtration.

Building exhaust fan run times and fresh air intakes have been increased to the maximum levels allowable for effective and sustainable operation.

Cleaning and disinfecting

Cummings Properties’ custodial staff cleans and disinfects building common areas at least two times per day, with the most frequently touched areas being addressed more often. Our team uses a bleach and water solution, as recommended by CDC.

The areas regularly disinfected include building entrance and common area door handles; railings; elevator buttons and handrails; vending machines; water fountains; and restroom counters, faucets, toilets, and doors.
