U.S. Airways Corporate Headquarters Earns Unprecedented 15th Consecutive ENERGY STAR® Label

(PHOENIX) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that the U.S. Airways / American Airlines office building in Tempe, AZ, has earned its 15th consecutive ENERGY STAR label from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The building is the only property in Arizona, and in the country, to have achieved this milestone.

Hines served as development manager for this 218,000-square-foot office building, which was completed in 1999 and has been responsible for managing the property since.

Designed by SmithGroup and Leo A. Daly, the nine-story building, majority owned by Parkway Properties, Inc., shares a 1,700 space garage with the Tempe Gateway building, also owned by Parkway.

Hines began benchmarking the property using ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager immediately after development was completed in 1999.

With a current ENERGY STAR rating of 96, the building is 52 percent more energy efficient; annually saving $1.53 per square foot in energy costs when compared to the national average office building.

This translates to greenhouse gas reductions equivalent to removing 398 passenger vehicles from the road.

Hines General Property Manager Darwyn Harp said, “Our Engineering Manager, Robert Bonilla, recognized the value of the ENERGY STAR program and its benchmarking tools early on.

This program has helped us to manage energy consumption, while progressively reducing expenditures for our tenant, U.S. Airways / American Airlines.”

“Buildings require constant attention to maintain top performance,” said Mike Zatz, Chief of the ENERGY STAR program’s Market Sectors Group. “By earning the ENERGY STAR every year for the past 15 years, Hines has demonstrated an unparalleled dedication to ensuring that this building continues delivering cost savings and greenhouse gas reductions.”

The property is also LEED® Gold certified under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Existing Buildings (EB) Rating System.

Sustainable features of the property include: energy-efficient lighting in the building and garage; Xeriscape desert landscaping; low-flow aerators at each lavatory; dual-flush valves; high-efficiency air filtration; high-performance cleaning and extensive paper/refuse recycling.

Hines is one of the most sustainable real estate companies in the world.

In 2014 Hines was recognized by the EPA, for the seventh time, with the ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award.

In addition, Hines has received the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award three times. Hines manages 171 labelled buildings, representing more than 79 million square feet, in the ENERGY STAR program.

Also, twelve Hines development or redevelopment projects, representing more than six million square feet, have been designated as Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR.

Hines is also a leader in the U.S. Green Building Council’s programs, with 202 projects, representing more than 103 million square feet that have been certified, pre-certified or registered under the various LEED rating systems.

Hines was a founding member of the German Sustainable Building Council and the Russian Green Building Council, and is active in the Green Building Council Brasil, the Green Building Council España, the Green Building Council Italia, the Indian Green Building Council, the BRE Environmental Assessment Method program in the United Kingdom and the Haute Qualité Environnementale program in France.
