Buildings That Work

Johnson Controls is very excited to announce the launch of a new advertising campaign titled "Buildings That Work.”

Johnson Controls has been making buildings "work" since 1885, with the invention of the first electronic thermostat. Today, 125 years later, they're enabling buildings to operate efficiently, profitably and provide comfortable, save living and work spaces, with minimal impact on the environment.

Johnson Controls believes they've got some pretty impressive success stories to share, which are the focus of their new "Buildings That Work" campaign. Take, for example, the 80 year old Empire State Building, which is advancing from one of the world's most admired buildings, to one of the most energy efficient. They're executing a broad range of renovations and retrofits designed to make the Empire State Building nearly 40 percent more energy efficient while significantly reducing carbon emissions.

When the project is complete in 2013, the Empire State Building will:

Be counted among the top 10 percent of all office buildings in the United States for energy efficiency of any age

•Reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 105,000 metric tons over the next 15 years

Realize energy savings of $4.4 million a year, with payback on the incremental investment in just three years

What's more, this project and the processes involved can be replicated for almost any multi-tenant building. In other words, what works for the Empire State Building can work anywhere.

Could your building be working smarter? Find out! Johnson Controls’ new, easy-to-use put your building to work calculator lets you estimate the energy cost savings, improved productivity and reduced carbon emissions that can be achieved through building improvements.
