The "Three E's"
Similar to the concept known as the "Triple Bottom Line," Environmental Systems Design ("ESD") has developed a comprehensive Intelligent Building solution framework that delivers results to its customers to support the "Three E’s" – Economic, Environmental and Experiential value stream.
Every new high performance, smart, intelligent, sustainable, green building that is being designed, built and operated today requires a rock-solid business case that is economically viable, environmentally sustainable and experientially successful. Investors, owners, developers, tenants, end-users and visitors alike all expect today’s buildings to be cost-effective, LEED or WELL certified and fully capable of supporting today’s digital lifestyle. To compete effectively in today’s corporate and commercial real estate markets in every market, a project must provide benefits across the spectrum of the “Three E’s. “
So…what are the “Three E’s in more detail? Let’s start with the first category – Economic performance. What are the key performance metrics of a building with superior economic attributes?
- Lower OpEx/CapEx
- Less Maintenance
- Lifespan Increase
- Asset Demand
- Adaptability Speed
- Competitive Advantage
- Energy Conservation
- Occupant Awareness
- Utility Optimization
- Grid Stress
- Green Construction
The most successful buildings today offer much more than just a place to work. As we have seen since the dawn of the new millennium, the work place is no longer a place to stare at your computer monitor all day and put in the hours. The highly experiential work place provides an extension of the digital lifestyle that starts at home and continues throughout the day as today’s workers experience a full range of places to work, collaborate and produce new ideas, new inventions and tomorrow’s products and services.
Today’s intelligent buildings are expected to have the latest and most cost-effective technology systems available on the market. In the commercial and corporate real estate market, it can sometimes be confusing about what systems are being provided by each party in the lease agreement.
To make things easier for the Owners, Developers, Tenants, Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Facility Managers, in fact, all the key stakeholder groups involved in the full life-cycle of the built environment, ESD has developed this checklist for those systems provided by the Landlord versus those provided by the Tenant.
