Liberty Property Trust Reflections II

The Reflections II property, located in Virginia Beach, VA, is a 76,890 sq. ft. commercial office building. With SSCís guidance, the property achieved both ENERGY STAR Certification and LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Gold Certification.

SSC provided comprehensive support in implementing and documenting the LEED EB process and was instrumental in assuring the projectís success.

With a focus on occupant comfort and safety, annual surveys are administered to maintain an optimal indoor environment. An Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Management Program for Alterations and Additions and a Green Cleaning Policy have also been enacted to address tenant health and wellbeing.

Libertyís commitment to responsible business practices is reflected in achieving an ENERGY STAR score of 85, indicating excellent energy efficiency. This also resulted in lower tenant utility costs, a significant advantage in attracting and retaining tenants.
