Landlords who are striving to create high performing interior environments as well as core and shell systems will need to standardize the work letter which specifies the design and construction of tenant’s office space. A green work letter should specify the building materials and systems that should be used, demolition and construction recycling practices as well as the type of lighting and plumbing fixtures to be installed.
Learn more about specifications to be included when developing a green work letter. For examples see green leasing specifications from the California and Pennsylvania Departments of General Services (DGS), and procurement guidelines from the EPA.
