2 Lafayette is Golden
We are excited to announce that 2 Lafayette has officially received LEED Gold certification!
The offices at 2 Lafayette Street house the formerly remote divisions of New York City’s Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) and Department for the Aging (DFTA). The design team and BKSK Lab went to great lengths to ensure that this project met and exceeded the design guidelines of the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) and the Design Excellence program of the Department of Design and Construction (DDC), and delivered a community-centered workplace of exceptional quality that promotes holistic well-being for employees and the public.
We are particularly proud of meeting 4 new LEED Pilot Credits centered on human health and wellness:
- Pilot Credit 22 – Quality Interior Lighting
- Pilot Credit 44 – Ergonomics Strategy
- Pilot Credit 61 – Material Disclosure & Assessment
- Pilot Credit 78 – Design for Active Occupants
Congratulations to the project team and BKSK Lab for this achievement!
