Dear Mr. McLaren,
I am an architect and urban planner in NYC. Currently I am working on an environmental argument in protest of the demolition of historic fabric around the Penn Station in NYC as part of the new development project.
I am working with the total square footage of the existing buildings, many were built in early 1900s, including by Mckim, Mead and White. I will not have time, scope doesn't warrant, to do a detailed material take off. A simple square foot value would be just great to apply.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.I thank you for your time.Damyanti Radheshwar FIIA AIA LEED AP

Hi Damu, check out this study by CLF which will give you some relevant benchmarking; Microsoft Word - CLF Embodied Carbon Benchmark Report 17 01 31b cover.docx (carbonleadershipforum.org)Hope you're doing well.
I am estimating the demolished area as 3,650,000 sf. Will be interested to hear what your guys come up with.
Talk to you Wednesday.
