Monday, August 31, 2009

BASF Construction Chemicals Building Systems

BASF Construction Chemicals said the U.S. Green Building Council awarded a LEED® Silver designation to the BASF Construction Chemicals-Building Systems headquarters and office/research complex in Shakopee, MN.  The company said the complex is only the third building in Minnesota to earn LEED EB (Existing Buildings) O&M (Operations and Maintenance) certification.

LEED for Existing Buildings addresses whole-building cleaning and maintenance procedures including chemical use, recycling programs, exterior maintenance programs, and systems upgrades. BASF said the LEED EB Silver designation for the building verifies that the company has achieved significant improvements in energy efficiency and water use; developed and implemented programs to dramatically reduce waste to landfill; encourages and facilitates sustainable purchasing policies; and made improvements to the indoor environmental quality of the building.

Doug MacRae, head of the Building Systems business, said the LEED EB designation “has allowed us to more fully understand what it takes to participate in green and sustainable construction and renovation projects.” The business is a manufacturer of building products of various types.

The 50,000-square-foot Shakopee complex building, originally constructed in 1972, has undergone three expansions and one significant renovation.
