All Client suite alterations, no matter how significant the scope, are subject to Building Standard approval procedures and Contractor Rules and Regulations. Please check your lease for any custom guidelines.
A Tenant Improvement Handbook is available through the Management Office. 400|450 N. Brand changed from a traditional building operations model of Building Efficiency to a culture of Good Environmental Stewardship that earned them Platinum Certification. In consideration of our effort to re-certify the projects and encourage our Tenants to adopt the culture of Good Environment Stewardship, beginning with sustainability practices at the Tenant Improvement stage, we have included in the Tenant Improvement Handbook building standard “Green Options” to be considered.
It is up to each Tenant to determine the economic impact implementing these options will have to their Improvement Allowance. However, it has been known that Green Certified or USGBC Certified products are available at the prevailing rates of non-certified products. “Green-Options” and recommended “Sustainable Practices” are marked with the green light bulb, as seen at the top of this paragraph. We also hope you will consider re-using existing equipment, and structural elements such as HVAC, ceiling tiles, lighting, doors, hardware etc., while not compromising tenant plans to prevent unnecessary construction waste or creating risks.
