An industrial approach to energy demand reduction and efficient use of resources.
LEED certification can be challenging for industrial facilities with remote locations and high process energy loads. Esterline Control Systems achieved LEED Certification at their Everett manufacturing facility despite a brownfield site contaminated with asbestos and lead. To reduce building energy use, small high-efficiency heat pump units were clustered to require no electrical reheating. High-bay T5 fluorescent lamps provide long life and instant re-strike, which combined with generator power allowed these fixtures to serve ‘double duty’ as normal lighting and emergency egress. Low flow water fixtures throughout the building reduce water consumption 40% over conventional use. Well over 30% of building materials by cost used for this facility, including gypsum wallboard, insulation, flooring, acoustical ceiling systems, steel and rebar contained recycled content. Green cleaning and integrated pest management programs preserve the healthy indoor environment.
