    Chicago Skyscraper Gets a Green Makeover

Occupying 27,000 square feet in a downtown Chicago skyscraper, Exelon’s newly renovated headquarters is a pilot for future office environments. The expansion into the 55th floor of the Chase Tower consolidates Exelon’s downtown employees into a single building. It features a fluid floor plan, numerous conference rooms and collaborative spaces, and 180 workspaces with flexible configurations.  

“The expansion of our corporate headquarters encourages collaboration, improves space efficiency, and allows us to easily reconfigure the space as our needs change,” said Ruth Ann Gillis, executive vice president and chief administrative and diversity officer of Exelon Corporation and president of Exelon Business Services Company. “The space was designed to be adaptable to the needs of our employees, particularly as mobility has become more important in how we work.”

The space also contributes to Exelon’s goals of reducing energy usage at its commercial buildings by 25% from 2001 levels by 2012, and eliminating the equivalent of its carbon footprint by 2020. The headquarters reduced electricity consumption by 50% and has seen a 38% reduction in water use compared to the previous space. All of the office’s electricity is offset by regional, Green-e certified wind power. It recently earned LEED Platinum certification, joining 7 other LEED buildings in Exelon’s portfolio.
