Date:4/17/2010

Chairman and CEO Daniel R. Tishman to Speak on Panel, ‘Cost-Effective Sustainable Design and Development,’ on Monday, April 19th from 16:00 to 17:00 hours

Abu Dhabi (PRWEB) April 17, 2010 -- Daniel R. Tishman, Chairman and CEO of New York-based Tishman Construction Corporation, will participate in a panel at Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2010 that explores sustainable design, construction, and real estate development. Tishman Construction, established in 1898, is known for successfully managing the complexities of sustainable construction, and is ranked by Building Design & Construction magazine as #1 in “green” construction in the United States as a result of having the largest percentage (70%) of sustainable projects on its roster.

Cityscape is an international real estate investment and development event held in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. Mr. Tishman, who has extensive credentials in sustainable design, development and construction, will participate in a panel entitled, “Cost-Effective Sustainable Design and Development,” on Monday, April 19 from 16:00 to 17:00 hours.

Mr. Tishman and the other panelists will discuss the following topics:

 
  • How important is sustainability to investors and end users?
  • Assessing the costs and impact on project viability
  • Strategies for cost-effective sustainable design
  • Is it happening now or in the next generation?
  • What will be the most important quality attributes of premium properties in the future?
  • Involvement of stakeholders to achieve sustainable cities.

“Our company is committed to sustainable design and construction for many reasons, not the least of which is that it makes good business sense and our clients increasingly demand it,” Mr. Tishman said. “By including sustainable design requirements in building codes and regulations from the outset, Abu Dhabi is proving to be a leader in what will without question be a growing trend among municipalities and governments around the world. Here in Abu Dhabi, the Estidama Sustainable Buildings and Communities Program is making significant strides to influence every project that is under design, development or construction, to ensure that goals for sustainable design are met.”

Tishman Construction Leads the World in Sustainable Construction Knowledge
   
Tishman Construction has built, or is now building, the world’s most innovative sustainable projects, including 7 World Trade Center, the first commercial office tower in New York City to achieve LEED Gold certification; 1 World Trade Center, which will be New York City’s tallest tower at 1,776 feet and which is pursuing LEED Gold certification; One Bryant Park in New York City, the first skyscraper in the world designed and built to LEED Platinum standards; and CityCenter, MGM MIRAGE’s and Dubai World’s 18-milion-square-foot hotel, casino and retail complex in Las Vegas, which has achieved LEED Gold certification.
   
Tishman also built the American Pharmacists Association’s headquarters in Washington DC and is working on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s 5.5-million-square-foot headquarters consolidation project in Maryland, where the company recently completed Building #1. The two projects were designed to LEED Silver standards. However, Tishman and the design team pursued additional LEED points on both buildings so that they both achieved LEED Gold certification at no extra cost to the owner.

Tishman Contributing Sustainable Expertise to United Arab Emirates
   
Tishman has operations in Abu Dhabi, where the Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) chose Tishman to provide project management and cost consulting services for the Angsana Resort and Spa--Eastern Mangroves, an environmentally sensitive project. Tishman is currently providing quantity surveys, and design and schedule consultation.

The resort will deliver a world-class lifestyle and tourist destination that will contribute to the preservation of the valuable Eastern Mangrove area. Designed in line with strict eco-guidelines, the resort ethos is sensitive to both the eco-balance of the natural mangroves and its guests’ desires. As part of TDIC’s extensive mangrove rejuvenation program, Tishman is managing the planting of more than 20,000 new seedlings.

TDIC also selected Tishman to provide project management and cost consulting services for the Abu Dhabi Golf Resort, where Tishman is providing quantity surveys, and design and schedule consultation. At the destination’s heart will be the 146-room, five-star Westin Hotel & Spa; meeting facilities for up to 400 people; ballroom, conference and board rooms and business centre; a 27-hole championship golf course, academy and clubhouse; pool and gymnasium; squash courts; and a tennis academy.
