Worth 3 GBCI CE hours (ID+C, Green Associate)
Lounge 201 at Rittenhouse Claridge, 201 South 18th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Thu, 08/17/2017 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm
LOUNGE 201 at the Rittenhouse Claridge is a 10,000 square foot resident amenity space, designed and built using sustainable materials and energy efficient technologies. LOUNGE 201 includes relaxing spaces, a business center, conference rooms, show kitchen, bar, and a complete fitness center complete with yoga room, sauna, shower, and restrooms. This amenity is open 24/7 to all residents and encompasses half of the second floor of the Rittenhouse Claridge, an early 1950s International-Style high-rise apartment building adjacent to Philadelphia's prestigious Rittenhouse Square. Since inception and through project completion, sustainable construction and operation were the primary goals, including achieving a minimum of LEED 2009, Commercial Interiors GOLD certification.
LOUNGE 201 incorporates renewable resource and recycled construction materials such as bamboo, cork, and recycled rubber. Electrical usage is at a minimum with LUTRON occupancy and daylight-controlled LED lighting throughout, conserving more than 90% of electricity over conventional incandescent lighting. The space is also fit out with all ENERGY STAR appliances. The perimeter HVAC fan-coil units as well as the overhead 100% outside-air ventilation system make use of the existing building’s hydronic piping, negating the need for any new large equipment for chilling/heating purposes. These fan-coils and overhead system are occupancy and CO2 controlled using VFDs and adaptive thermostats, so they only run when absolutely necessary. Employing low-flow and automated fixtures also closely controls water usage in the kitchen, bathrooms, and other areas of LOUNGE 201. Additionally, a 1,500 square foot vegetated roof was included in this project, with drought-resistant plants selected to negate the need for an irrigation system. In May 2017, LOUNGE 201 was awarded LEED GOLD for Commercial Interiors with a score of 67.
