Sustainable Ventilation in High-Rise Office Buildings 
When it comes to energy, the tendency is for owners of high-rise office buildings to charge tenants for all consumption and make no improvements. This is unfortunate, as opportunities for energy conservation—and, thus, carbon-dioxide (CO2) reduction—through the regulation of ventilation air abound, bringing with them money-saving and public-relations benefits for both owners and tenants.
LEED Commissioning for New and Existing Buildings
