Nordson Corp. recently announced it has received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Sliver certification for its headquarters building in Westlake, Ohio. The building becomes the first corporate headquarters in the greater Cleveland area to be awarded LEED certification, according to the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED Projects & Case Studies Directory.

The 28,000-sq-ft facility was opened in November 2010 and incorporates a number of significant green building technologies. Environmentally friendly features include energy-optimized lighting, HVAC and water systems; a partial green roof planted with native vegetation; a parking lot and landscape design that mitigates storm water generation; reflective white roofing materials that reduce heat island effects; and regionally sourced and recycled construction materials.

“Nordson’s LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair of the USGBC. “The urgency of USGBC’s mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and Nordson serves as a prime example with just how much we can accomplish.”

Cleveland-area architectural firm Clark & Post Architects reportedly helped Nordson realize the goal of designing a building that reflects its values and philosophy. “Beyond providing a payback on the investment made in the systems, the choice of high-efficiency equipment and enhanced design is a tangible representation of Nordson’s dedication to not only the environment, but also local communities,” said Ronald A. Cocco, president of Clark & Post Architects.

“Our headquarters’ environmentally friendly construction and features are consistent with our corporate philosophy and values, which include an emphasis on creating long-term benefits for the communities where we operate,” said Michael F. Hilton, president and CEO of Nordson.
