When the USG corporate headquarters project began, the goal was simple: create a flexible, healthy and productive workplace for employees. Three years after the project's completion, USG reduced energy use, costs and other environmental impacts and registered with the hope of being awarded a LEED CI (commercial interiors) Gold space - the United States Green Building Council's voluntary rating standard for green design and construction.
As a leader in building supply, USG is committed to being on the forefront of environmentally economical product development. To illustrate its commitment, USG installed its own products, including HALCYON™ CLIMAPLUS™ and MARS™ CLIMAPLUS™ Ceiling Panels, which helped reduce the Noise Reduction Coefficient from 70 percent in its former location to 90 percent in this current headquarters.
The new construction virtually eliminated waste, diverting nearly 70 percent away from landfills and reduced transportation costs by shipping in products from many locations within 500 miles of the building site. Additionally, the USG headquarters is ranked near the top 10 percent of Energy Star-certified buildings in the country.
