An impressive trash sorting program
was implemented wherein, the inhouse janitorial staff hand-separates
all compostable and recyclable items
from the building waste-stream on a daily
basis. Remarkably, 92% of all building
waste is either recycled or composted,
sending only 8% to the landfill.
In addition the property management
team has launched numerous initiatives
including: a comprehensive green
cleaning program; an ordering policy
for building supplies, reducing the
quantity of deliveries; a low/no mercury
light bulb purchasing policy; and a
policy to mulch plant waste and tree
pruning on-site as ground cover, rather
than disposal.
89% of occupants utilize
some-type of alternative
transportation.
92% of ongoing consumables
are recycled or composted that
otherwise would have been
sent to local landfills.
ENERGY STAR rating of
94, ranking within the top
performing office buildings in
the country.
Landscape water use is over
87% less than would be
required for conventional
landscaping in the region.
Energy efficiency projects
have generated over $40,000
in electrical cost savings,
representing a 2.2 year
payback after rebates and
incentives.

Located in the South of Market Financial District in San Francisco, California, 405 Howard
Street, also known as The Orrick Building, is a distinctive, modern-day landmark in the
heart of the City. Built in 2002, the 10-story, 503,576 square-foot structure, designed by
Studios Architecture, is located on 1.7 acres and features a modern steel and glass design,
state-of-the-art building infrastructure and systems, large floor plates, excellent views and
a plaza area showcasing contemporary art in an active, urban environment.
The Orrick Building was originally designed and constructed with sustainable
elements including: a dramatic glass curtain wall with low-e glazing, 12foot ceilings, 100% fresh air intake, T5 and T8 building standard lighting,
a raised floor HVAC distribution system and low-flow plumbing fixtures. This
existing awareness and commitment to sustainability positioned the building to
be the perfect candidate for LEED Platinum certification.
405 Howard Street is managed by Ashforth Pacific of California LLC and is owned by an
affiliate of the General Electric Pension Trust in joint venture with The Ashforth Company.
In May of 2010, Ashforth Pacific, in collaboration with BuildingWise, secured the
prestigious, United States Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED-EB Platinum certification
for the Orrick Building. Earning 90 out of 110 possible points, the Orrick Building became
the second multi-tenant building in all of San Francisco to achieve this level of LEED®,
and is the highest scoring existing building in the United States to date.
Ashforth Pacific not only looked to their industry experts and consultants, but
involved their tenants in many aspects of the process. In fact, each tenant elected
a LEED delegate that represented their business in the coordination of LEEDrelated tenant tasks and communications. The innovative establishment of this
tenant-landlord partnership created a unique sense of camaraderie and positive
momentum towards the common goal of LEED certification.

The maximum number of points was achieved in the
Energy and Atmosphere category of LEED due to
optimizing outstanding energy efficiency in such a large
structure that is almost 100% occupied. The building
currently has an Energy Star rating of 94, yielding 17
out of 18 possible points for this credit. Efforts made in
their commissioning process show signs of the Energy
Star score improving even more in the years to come.
The efforts made in alternative transportation exceeded ex-
