JetBlue’s Long Island City, Queens offices are decked out in the company's signature color, but underneath all of that cobalt is a layer of bright green. Designed by HLW International, the environmentally friendly oasis mirrors the look and feel of the company's home base at JFK’s Terminal 5 with sleek, glassy partitions and bold graphic wall treatments. Boasting a LEED EB Silver certification, the sprawling workplace is filled with natural light and fitted out with sustainable furniture and carpeting.
During construction, the team recycled 90% of demolition waste, while also reusing elements like ceiling tiles, duct work and sprinkler pipes. An office-wide strict recycling program keeps paper consumption down, and LEED-certified cleaning products keep the offices responsibly clean. Finally, the workplace’s Long Island City location adjacent to several train lines promotes green transportation.
