BioStar Renewables worked with Block & Co. to upgrade the LED lighting throughout all common areas, offices and the parking garage in this iconic Plaza building. Block & Co. has been aggressive in achieving sustainability and energy related goals across their portfolio, working on several projects with the BioStar team to improve their tenant’s space while saving energy and money.
A leader in commercial real estate service and innovation, Block & Company Inc. has established an initiative to save energy and money across their portfolio of properties. Searching for energy efficiency solutions that make economic sense, they partnered with BioStar and completed LED projects at the Skelly Building, The Landing Mall, Summit Woods pads and Summit Crossing.
At the Skelly Building on the Country Club Plaza, home of Block & Company Inc.’s headquarters, the LED upgrade of more than 1100 fixtures achieved 71% energy reduction, saving almost 300,000 kilowatt-hours per year. Including maintenance savings, the retrofit reduces total lighting costs by 75%, resulting in a 1.9-year payback after a rebate from KCP&L.
