Nestled in the heart of the financial district, One Sansome Street is one of the tallest buildings in San Francisco. In 2014, it became the first skyscraper in the world to certify under LEED v4 for Existing Buildings and attain Platinum status. I recently spoke to Michael Barker, Managing Director of Barker Pacific Group (project owner) and Barry Giles, Founder and CEO of BuildingWise LLC (consultant) about One Sansome Street.
The LEED v4 stories series features the people the behind diverse LEED v4 projects. Here, you’ll find interviews with project team members and project owners that tell of their experiences—both the wins and the challenges.
