We believe in public accountability and ongoing reporting for our building so that the building’s design potential is being met or improved upon.
 
As part of tracking our progress, each year we publish a comprehensive report on the overall performance of the Szencorp Building. Independent reports are available on occupant productivity, occupant satisfaction, waste and indoor environment quality (IEQ). Read the Building Performance Reports below...
