2013 Finalist

Who led the charge



Dennis Skelly
Senior Property Manager,   Liberty Property Trust


Dennis joined Liberty in 2009, bringing with him over a decade of Class A commercial property management experience. He and his team carry out Liberty’s mission of “Enhancing People’s Lives Through Extraordinary Work Environments” by integrating sustainability and smart management practices into their day-to-day operations to create high performance buildings.

Reflections II, Virginia Beach, VA
Commercial Office Building - 76,890 sq. ft.

Plans to improve the energy efficiency of 200 Golden Oak kicked off with the installation of a building wide area network (BWAN), which allowed property managers to monitor the building’s energy consumption. This technology enabled Dennis and his team to address energy waste immediately, rather than waiting for the utility bill to arrive (and making adjustments after the fact). The value of the project is optimized by combining energy conservation measures with a concerted focus on communicating continuously.

The team’s successful energy efficiency strategy has led to a 24% reduction in energy consumption. Beginning in 2012, the team also elected to offset 100% of its energy consumption with renewable energy credits!

With the improvements gained by this project, Liberty is pursuing LEED EBOM Gold certification.
