Sustainability

AECOM Tishman both promotes and practices environmental stewardship and sustainable solutions, and has been involved in some of the most advanced sustainable buildings ever conceptualized. Predating the advent of LEED certification, AECOM Tishman constructed the first environmentally-responsible office tower at Four Times Square – which included many features that later became hallmarks of LEED-certified projects. AECOM Tishman constructed the first LEED Platinum office tower in the U.S., the Bank of America Tower, and the first LEED Gold tower in New York, 7 World Trade Center.

Our sustainability specialists have expertise in the procurement and installation of varied energy efficient systems and technologies, such as photovoltaics, gray water recycling, and green roofs. We also know how to implement protocols that reduce the carbon footprint of the project during construction.

Emerging Technologies

AECOM Tishman has perfected the integration of innovative technologies, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and cloud-based project management tools that enhance design and construction efficiency, improve trade contractor coordination, reduce field changes, precisely monitor schedule progress, optimize long-term asset performance, and facilitate the usage of new technologies, such as virtual reality.

Lean Construction

Today, AECOM Tishman is modifying its practices and taking construction management to the next level with Lean Construction implementation. The entire focus of this philosophy is on creating greater value for the client. Our integrated approach emphasizes collaboration between subcontractors, manufacturers, fabricators and designers during the design and construction process. Lean reduces overall waste and improves transparency – simplifying decision-making – enabling our team to accomplish our clients’ goals: increased quality and shorter schedules for less cost.
