2 Sustainability Consulting, Education and Analysis T Firm Overview YR&G provides technical and strategic sustainability consulting services to organizations, buildings, and communities across the U.S. and internationally. We believe that the most sustainable outcomes occur at the intersection of people and technology, and we use this principle to guide our clients and projects to realize their highest potential. Through a combination of modeling, analysis, benchmarking, research, creative visioning, alignment, and education, we facilitate an integrated process and enable results through informed decisions. YR&G takes a multidisciplinary approach, linking the skills and knowledge of our core team of professionals - architects and engineers, teachers and business strategists, biologists and building scientists - to provide a broad and technically rigorous approach with a focused lens of sustainability. YR&G is organized into four key teams that work collaboratively to support a wide range of projects and client types. These teams include: Building Design + Construction We support project teams across the spectrum of development projects to optimize building design and construction practices. Services include: Charrette facilitation & process, design and technology optimization Energy, daylight, comfort, & cost-benefit modeling Commissioning & M&V Education & training Certification coordination (LEED, Living Building Challenge, etc.) Building Performance + Operations We work with facility managers, building engineers, property owners, and corporate real estate personnel to improve building performance and implement best practices across operations through: Benchmarking & performance measurement Retro-commissioning, audits, & energy efficiency implementation support Building operations policy & plan development Education, training, & occupant engagement Certification coordination (LEED-EBOM, etc.) Community + Neighborhood Development We support new and existing communities to become hubs of living and economic vitality including through: Community alignment & integrative charrettes Site energy & infrastructure analysis Master plan design support Energy & water resource mapping & analysis Green building guidelines Certification coordination (Green Communities, LEED-ND, etc.) Corporate Sustainability We learn the culture and market of each organization we work with to develop a comprehensive approach for managing sustainability initiatives, and supporting the implementation of those initiatives.

3 Sustainability Consulting, Education and Analysis T Building Performance & Operations YR&G works with building owners, managers, and operators to identify opportunities for sustainability-related initiatives in existing facilities, and to implement those initiatives with measurable success. We take a broad approach to sustainability with an emphasis on building and occupant performance. Whether the focus is on asset value, short- or long-term cost savings, occupant productivity, health and well being, tenant communications, LEED certification, vendor management, or procurement and waste our approach is rooted in project-specific, practical, and experience-based solutions. To accomplish this, we assess building and site performance based on observation, testing, benchmarking, technical audits, utility bill analysis, lease and standard operating protocol reviews, and conversations with the operations team and building occupants. We use this information to establish an overall strategy and approach, including specific action steps to ensure successful implementation. We then guide the development and adoption of policies, data tracking and management systems, and overall improvements to the facility. This may include performing retro-commissioning services, guiding capital improvements, instituting management practices, collecting, managing, and analyzing data, coordinating certifications, providing education opportunities, implementing communications plans, or aiding building operators in performing their own continuous improvement process. A selection of our relevant project experience is in the following pages. New York Denver Chicago

To date, YR&G has supported concurrent LEED-EBOM certification of seven multi-tenant office buildings located in and around the Washington, DC metropolitan area; certification of multiple New York City holdings, including The Chrysler Building and Hearst Tower, and is most recently working with Tishman Speyer building engineers and property managers in Chicago to optimize the energy performance of properties currently in pursuit of LEED certification. YR&G Role YR&G has been working with Tishman Speyer since At the scale of individual buildings, we work to benchmark their current sustainability performance against standardized metrics, develop plans for implementing changes to existing operations, including financial budgeting associated with LEED-driven enhancements, and coordinate comprehensive green education and occupant engagement programs. At the corporate scale, we provide support in standardizing sustainable practices, where appropriate, across their operations through the continuous development of their Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), as well as developing and disseminating information related to LEED and sustainable operations practices through toolkits and training. Comprehensive green education and occupant engagement programs, including tenant guidelines, interactive tenant portals, and green education events Both operational and minor capital energy conservation measures discovered and implemented to increase overall portfolio energy efficiency Rolling plumbing fixture upgrades to meet both financial, tenant and LEED timelines Comprehensive training program with engineering teams to inform them about sustainability processes and provide both consistency and support in documentation development Development of an engineering toolkit designed to fully engage building engineers in the LEED energy auditing and indoor air quality procedures, so that engineers have the tools and skills to perform, on an ongoing basis, procedures for optimizing building efficiency and performance LEED GA Trainings for Tishman Speyer employees in D.C., New York, and Chicago
