Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

There was a groundbreaking event for Evolv1 this morning. Speakers suggested that the first occupancy would happen summer of 2018. I'm not sure if it's in this thread, but one of the anchor tenants is Ernst & Young (er, EY).

Also, I would suggest this thread should be renamed Evolv1, but just a suggestion.

This seems to be ticking along nicely. The framing started going up around the 5th, and was at the third floor by the end of last week. There was a fair bit of activity on site last week.

Nor should they have been, since that's not usually dependent on a building's design. But when a poorly-designed HVAC (whatever part of the HVAC) caused a lot of the space conditioning to be born by the plug load, that's not good.

It's true that ground-source heat pumps work great in the majority of cases, and I'm sure it will here, too. It will be neat to have a unique building like this at this spot.

My guess would be poorly designed HVAC systems.  Half the buildings I've worked in have had very poor HVAC systems.  The one I work in now has temperature differentials of 10 degrees between some rooms.  And I've never been in a building with anything besides traditional chillers and natural gas heaters.

That's not so much of an HVAC design issue (assuming forced-air HVAC), it's a matter of balancing the air outputs properly to achieve steady temperatures.

[EDIT] What-- this is so old (February) why did this come across my feeds just now?

The headline is a rather strong claim, and unfortunately the article fails to back it up with much in terms of detail.

An office building so green it actually produces energy
