This is a very exciting time for our Company as we ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to sustainability and performance of our own products. We are engaged in a full renovation of a building that was the former home of a large insurance company but has been vacant for a decade.. With our building products we are transforming the building – inside and out – to a state-of-the-art sustainable, living laboratory for our products and systems that should qualify as USGBC LEED Gold.
Because this is our building it gives us the opportunity to practice all the things that we preach on a daily basis to the market about our products. This is an opportunity to create our environment, live in it and monitor how our products perform. It is also an opportunity for all of our sister businesses to come together and address challenges such as indoor air quality, managing office acoustics, daylighting issues and overall comfort throughout the work day.
This project has generated a great deal of excitement for all our employees and we will have a great deal to talk about over the next year in our blogs because it is a living, breathing example of building sustainably with sustainable materials and with an eye on the future.
There is no other building on the planet that will have this unique suite of dynamic products all working together to make a material difference in how we work so we can help others change the places where they work.
I hope you will check back frequently, follow our journey, along with the pains and woes that all people go through when building a building sustainably. It should be educational and fun!
