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.
