Case Study: LEED Silver-North Branch Construction Headquarters

Come tour the North Branch Construction Corporate Headquarters LEED Silver Certified Building and learn why the company decided to “Build Green”

For North Branch, the purpose of designing and building their own “green” facility was three-fold: First, as an environmentally responsible corporation, North Branch (a leader in sustainable construction in New Hampshire) wanted to do their part for the environment and were willing to “put their money where their mouth is,” just as they encourage their clients to build green. Second, the firm wanted to have their own building USGBC LEED certified, taking that extra step in “green” construction; thereby adding first-hand value to their LEED expertise which, in turn, they share with and implement for their clients as they promote sustainable construction. Third, North Branch wanted their new facility to be energy efficient (ultimately resulting in cost savings), user friendly, and a healthy environment for their personnel.

The new facility is not only meeting North Branch’s goals mentioned above, but has also become a tool that the company uses as visitors tour the building. Small plaques throughout the building provide educational facts about the green features of the building. The LEED process has been an educational tool for the company’s employees as they learn about and appreciate the systems of the building they work in every day.

Learn more about the green features in the facility that lead to gaining the USGBC LEED Silver Certification.
