SUMMARY:
As a marvel of modern building construction, TAIPEI 101 Tower stood proudly as the tallest building in the world from its completion in 2004, until it was surpassed in height in 2010. The decision to pursue LEED certification was made in 2009, and the renovations, performance monitoring, and compilation of necessary documentation took approximately 2+ years when the building was successfully awarded the highest level of certification, LEED Platinum certification.

In pursuit of Platinum certification, the highest LEED rating standard, TAIPEI 101 attempted nearly every credit opportunity under the LEED EBOM v2009 rating system. The ambitious goals of the project owners & management pushed the team to go above and beyond, striving for extraordinary building operation. One of the most important aspects representative of the project team’s efforts was the integration of many departments and collaborated efforts toward the project's success.
