With an advanced infrastructure that is both maximally flexible for tenant fit-outs and technologically smart, 10 Hudson Yards is the first New York commercial office building to receive LEED v2009 Platinum certification.
A “bathtub” secured by “submarine doors” seals off and waterproofs all critical infrastructure—from fuel pump rooms to elevator pits—that sits below the flood plain.
EQUIPPED FOR UNDERFLOOR OR OVERHEAD AIR DISTRIBUTION
The ventilation and air conditioning infrastructure supports both underfloor and overhead air distribution, providing tenants with the flexibility to install either system.
1.2 MW of gas-fired micro turbines generate energy-efficient power for the building, even in the event of a utility grid power outage. The waste heat that they create is used to generate hot and chilled water.
HIGHLY EFFICIENT, CENTRAL PLANT
Hot and chilled water is generated in a central plant and distributed to tenant floors for heating and cooling, which is more energy efficient than other commonly used systems.
As part of Hudson Yards’ thermal microgrid, the building receives supplemental energy-efficient hot and chilled water from a 13.2MW cogeneration plant that serves the entire neighborhood.
Minimizing its burden on the city’s sewer system, 10 Hudson Yards collects storm water on its roof and uses it to replenish cooling towers and irrigate the landscaping.
ADVANCED LIGHTING CONTROLS
10 Hudson Yards' IT and electrical infrastructure is ready for tenants to plug in the most advanced, fully addressable lighting and shade control systems.
OPTIMAL TELECOM ACCESS
10 Hudson Yards offers tenants multiple points of entry to communication carriers; a robust telecommunications platform that includes site-wide WiFi; fiber optic networking; and wireless communications from any device at any on-site location.
CAMPUS-WIDE OPTIMIZATION AND COORDINATION
The Operation Control Center and an Energy Control Center coordinate security, building performance and visitor experience throughout Hudson Yards. Further, in partnership with NYU’s CUSP program, data and urban scientists will track activity in the building and neighborhood to inform future improvements.
