Jason Latimer takes us on a tour of this world-famous building to learn why it’s considered a leader in sustainability. With a behind the scene look from Director of Energy, Sustainability and ESG, Dana Robbins Schneider, we learn about the innovative techniques used across every aspect of the building, to minimize environmental impact…..and might just get a look at the secret underground wind tunnels…. Make sure to stay until the end for an IMPOSSIBLE magic trick, NEVER seen before!
