Everything we do as a company is focused on sustainability, including the construction of our new facility in Waunakee, WI. That’s why we’re extremely proud that it recently achieved LEED Gold certification on top of our existing three Green Globes. This makes us one of only a handful of commercial buildings to earn dual certifications through these two independent and rigorous rating systems.
When we built our new facility, we made sure to incorporate key aspects for realizing LEED Gold. These include: offering high-level IAQ, renovating an existing building, recycling 95% of construction waste, improving energy performance by 34%, reducing water use by 40%, powering the building with 100% wind-generated electricity, using low-emitting building materials and providing substantial indoor lighting via LED bulbs and natural daylight with skylights and solar tubes. In fact, RenewAire’s seven ERVs and DOAS units in the facility accounted for nearly 25% of the points in the “Optimize Energy Performance” category!
A big thanks to everyone involved in making our LEED Gold certification a reality. If you haven’t visited our new facility yet, please stop by and we’ll show you sustainability in action.
