GREEN LEASES – HOW TO AVOID PAYING TOO MUCH GREEN TO BE GREEN

With the official “push” by both state and federal government to attract and build up the sustainable practices industry, it’s no wonder that “green” leases are becoming increasingly popular across a wide swath of industries. But this is unchartered territory, so plan ahead and consider the following issues:

1.         Determine Your Vision of Sustainability

Your goals should be captured in the lease terms that define what it means for the rental space to be “green” and allocate construction, design, and operation costs and responsibilities. 

2.         Identify Barriers to Your Sustainability Goals

The field of green leasing exists because traditional lease documents create barriers to the collaboration between landlord and tenant needed to meet sustainability goals. 

3.         Align Incentives and Responsibilities to Help Achieve Sustainability Goals

Once the barriers to sustainability in a lease have been identified, the lease must be modified to minimize or eliminate those barriers.  There is no one-size-fits-all approach. 

4.         Consider the Best Time to Implement Sustainability Goals

Some green concepts can be integrated into the building at a lower cost during construction than as a modification at a later date.  These include:

  • Submetering of electrical and water consumption;
  • Incorporation of renewable sources into the power supply; and
  • Improved indoor air quality through use of products with low volatile organic compound levels.

5.         Negotiate Contracts for Improvements or Upgrades Carefully

Contracts with a general contractor and architect should be specific in spelling out obligations to use certain materials, contractors and disposal methods.  Clarify who is responsible for meeting the standards you strive for and describe the remedies available if the standards are not met.

Due for completion in December 2009, the Willamette Block, located at 722 SW Second on the corner of Yamhill, is currently undergoing a $7 million renovation in preparation for the arrival of Portland Community College staff and administrators. The 35,000 square foot building used to house the U of O Duck Shop until the University of Oregon moved into the recently renovated White Stag Building on Naito and Couch.

The interior is being completely gutted with the focal point being a large, ground floor conference room with red glass walls visible from the street. The exterior will not change except for the removal of the green awnings.

Perhaps the biggest change will be the upgrade to full seismic requirements and new mechanical systems. This is intended to help the building achieve LEED Gold certification, making it the third downtown historical property to aggressively pursue LEED status (Brewery Blocks and White Stag being the other two).  Other green features will include:

  • Radiant panels for heating and cooling
  • New boiler heating and chilling units 
  • Sealing existing windows
  • Photovoltaic array on the roof
  • System to harvest gray water for non-potable use
  • Space for bike parking and showers
  • Low-flow toilets and aerators to reduce water use
