Designed by HWKN and Handel Architects, Minno & Wasko is acting as the Pay for Performance (P4P) Partner and the Home Innovation Green Verifier for the 2012 National Green Building Standard, as part of the New Jersey New Construction program, which takes a comprehensive, whole building approach to saving energy.  This project includes 540 market rate apartments in a 56 story tower.  Our role is to develop an Energy Reduction Plan identifying energy saving measures for the building to perform 15% better than a code compliant building. The program offers (3) financial incentives supported offering compensation to offset improvements made in the building to save energy. This process starts in the design phase by making recommendations of decisions and material selections through construction of the apartment building. The project was completed in March of 2017.
