Description:
Saint‐Gobain CertainTeed’s new headquarters is a living lab. Learn about the benefits and challenges of renovating an existing building into a double LEED Platinum project.  In 2016, CR Magazine published a list of the most sustainable corporate headquarters. On the list were leading companies including Saint‐Gobain CertainTeed. Demonstrating their leadership in sustainability, instead of building a ground up, new corporate headquarters, Saint‐Gobain CertainTeed transformed a 320,000 SF existing office building into a state of the art headquarters incorporating innovative solutions for energy use and a premier environment for employees. The project recently achieved LEED v2009 for Core & Shell Development Platinum certification and LEED v2009 for Commercial Interiors Platinum certification.
