Manufacturing and administrative space addition (31,474 SF). All aspects of the construction were given extensive review to achieve very high energy conservation. Examples – solar trackers, roof mounted photovoltaic systems, geothermal wells and a well sealed envelope. Water quality and water savings are achieved through dual-flush toilets, ground source cooling and effective storm water management. Earth-friendly and healthy materials include low and no VOC adhesives, concrete flooring and sustainably harvested wood furniture. Excellent indoor air quality comes from natural ventilation and operable windows, indoor plants and low and no VOC materials.
This project received LEED Gold certification and an Efficiency Vermont Better Buildings by Design award, First Place Large Buildings.
