IRVINE COMPANY OFFICE PROPERTIES
Thoughtful stewardship guided by a determination to leave a positive legacy for future generations has been and always will be a core value of Irvine Company.
For more than a century, Irvine Company has been at the forefront of what has come to be known as green design, construction and operation.
This philosophy is evidenced in our office properties where sustainable practices are a part of everyday operations. These practices include:
• Energy efficient HVAC and lighting
LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) CERTIFICATION
Eleven office towers in the Irvine Company Office Properties portfolio have been awarded certification by the U.S. Green Building Council® in the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance category—a designation reserved for the highest performing, most sustainable buildings.
An additional 43 have been registered and are pending certification. All of our properties are operated using sustainable practices as performance measurement guidelines.
ENERGY STAR LABELED BUILDINGS
The Irvine Company portfolio of office buildings ranks in the top ten nationally and second in California among all property managers in terms of total square feet ENERGY STAR labeled. More than 90% of the buildings in the high-rise portfolio have been awarded the ENERGY STAR label, signifying energy performance rating in the top 10 percent of facilities nationwide.
Commercial buildings with the ENERGY STAR label use an average of 40 percent less energy than typical buildings and release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
|For nearly 150 years, the Irvine Company has been entrusted with the stewardship of planning, developing and preserving some of the most beautiful and valuable land anywhere.

The 54 ENERGY STAR rated buildings of the company have received an average score of 83. ENERGY STAR rating is given to buildings that score 75 or more on the EPA's scale of 1-100.

Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards
Fox Plaza, the Irvine Company's world-renowned office tower in Century City, as well as gleaming Hyatt Center in Chicago, have been honored with The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award by the Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA), each recognized for excellence in office building management and operations.
Fox Plaza, an International TOBY award winner, first won local and regional competitions. Judging was based on community impact, tenant/employee relations programs, energy management systems, accessibility for the disabled, emergency evacuation procedures, building personnel training programs, a comprehensive building inspection, and overall quality indicators.
Hyatt Center earned the prestigious recognition in BOMA's Over One Million Square Feet category, competing in nine categories including tenant relations initiatives, commitment to environmental sustainability, emergency preparedness, budgeting, work order systems, security standards, staff experience and continuing education opportunities.
