Strong Value for Green Buildings
WHILE questions have arisen about the potential crushing effects of the current economic situation on the trend toward green commercial building and retrofitting, a team of researchers have concluded that the value of green building remains strong.

Among them is Nils Kok, a professor at Maatricht University in the Netherlands nd visiting scholar at the University of California at Berkeley. Speaking at a workshop hosted by the California Center for Sustainable Energy in San Diego, Kok presented an analysis of the financial performance of green office buildings in the United States. The study is based on actual market transactions and not simply engineering estimates.

Kok said that office buildings with energy efficiency certification can command higher rents, expect better occupancy rates and garner a greater sale value. The initial study was published in 2008, but follow-up analysis in October 2009 showed these values held even during the global economic crisis.

The studies focused on nearly 2,700 office buildings with either ENERGY STAR or LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) ratings in cities across the nation and some 22,000 comparable, non-green office buildings located within a quarter mile of the certified buildings.

The researchers found that green buildings have rental rates that are tow percent higher per square foot than otherwise identical nearby buildings. When the rates are adjusted for building occupancy levels and rental concessions, the premium rises to above six percent.

At the average size of the buildings in the study, the estimated annual rent increase for green building is almost USD241,000, giving the building an increased sale value of about USD4.7 million more than comparable unrated buildings in close proximity.

"This study provides the first credible evidence on the economic value of the certification of 'green' or energy-efficient buildings in the commercial sector," KoK said. "In trying to encourage the development of a more sustainably built environmental, it is important to be able to demonstrate to investors and developers that there is financial benefit from investing in green."

Office buildings with energy efficient certification can command higher rents, expect better occupancy rates and garner a greater sale value

As with all real estate, Kok said, it's about, "location, location, location" - except the news for green building isn't as good. As it turns out, in the more desirable and expensive locations, there is less value to being green. He is quick to add, however, there is still a good premium and that individual building characteristics play a big role in sale value.

Some interesting observations about green buildings in the study:

• Substantially larger on average
• Higher occupancy rates
• More likely to have net rent contracts in which tenants pay directly for utilities
• More newer, averaging about 24 years old
• Nearly 80 per cent rated as "class A"
• More on-site amenities, such as retail shops and exercise facilities
• improved indoor environment might result in high employee productivity
• Likely positive effect on corporate image of tenants
• Longer economic lives, less depreciation and lower overall risk
• Commercial buildings in the United States use or produce

60 per cent of electricity
Billions of gallons of water daily
30 per cent of solid waste generated
30 to 40 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions (including
