Edison, New Jersey—May 26, 2011—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced that 103 Carnegie Center and 5 Vaughn Drive in Princeton, along with 14 Commerce Drive, Cranford Business Park in Cranford, have received energy reduction awards from the New Jersey Chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (“BOMA”).
The awards were presented at the organization’s first annual Building Energy Reduction Awards ceremony on May 25 at The Newark Club in Newark.
103 Carnegie Center and 5 Vaughn Drive received the awards based on strict adherence to Mack-Cali’s “Building Best Operating Practices.” Management continues to pursue energy reducing renovations such as hands-free restroom faucets, lighting motion sensors, replacing T-12 with T-8 lighting fixtures, control system upgrades, as well as optimizing HVAC PM scheduling.
In addition to ongoing “Building Best Operating Practices,” energy conservation efforts at 14 Commerce Drive benefited from the implementation of a state-of-the-art building automation system (BAS) to efficiently control the building’s HVAC systems, as well as a parking lot lighting system upgrade. Management is dedicated to continuing improvements to reduce energy use and to ensure that existing equipment performs at a high level of efficiency.
Mitchell E. Hersh, Mack-Cali president and chief executive officer, commented, “These awards are excellent demonstrations of our continuing commitment to upholding the highest standards for the management of Mack-Cali’s office properties.”
