Green Building Evaluation.
Marc Karell managed the peer review and recommendations for enhancement of the green building and energy efficiency proposals that were incorporated into the billion dollar capital master plan of the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. An assessment of the building’s performance against the LEED rating system was undertaken. The team recommended about 20 design and operational changes into the final design or the headquarters’ renovation. The UN accepted nearly all of them.
