The two-story, 24,860-sf Knauf Insulation Corporate Office building accommodates 44 new offices, a 126-seat public classroom named “Knauf Academy,” and a corporate fitness center. The facility has been awarded LEED Gold certification through the U.S. Green Building Council.
The building will use 30 percent less energy and water than similar conventional buildings. “Green” features include a white membrane roof, native plant landscaping, recycled water irrigation, and shaded parking. The use of automatic office lighting, sun-shaded windows, and “daylight harvesting” of natural sunlight will reduce the need for electricity to light and cool the facility.
