By any measure, the fifth-floor renovation at 120 Saint James in Boston, formerly the John Hancock Tower, is an impressive project. The LEED Gold-certified office, home to more than 200 Jacobs employees, features a 100-percent parking reduction, incorporates more than three dozen products meeting material ingredient reporting requirements, offers an abundance of sunlight and quality views of the historic city, and addresses eight of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With this type of project, designers need a platform to organize the sustainability components before anything goes to the contractors. Everything needs to be in one place.

The renovation at 120 Saint James was achieved on an aggressive nine-month schedule that included design, construction, and occupancy. A key piece in this quick and meaningful turnaround on the 49K SF space was the use of Green Badger, a comprehensive solution for equipping project teams of all levels of experience with the tools needed to document LEED as efficiently as possible. Green Badger pairs cloud-based technology with project-specific training, LEED tips and tricks, and ongoing project team support. Jacobs used the construction of its office at 120 Saint James as a test case for using Green Badger with its clients.
