Leetsdale Industrial Corporation Building 900 is a 70,000 square foot pre-engineered metal flex office warehouse. Landau Building Company constructed the core and the shell. Specific strategies were implemented by Landau to achieve LEED Certification. The HVAC equipment was protected from exposure to dust and odor by storing it off-site until all other indoor construction activities were complete. Once installed, the HVAC equipment remained sealed until the tenant fit-outs were complete. No toxic materials were used inside the building, and all painting and caulking activities were on the building’s exterior. Solar reflective paints were used on the roof to achieve LEED credits. Sensitive and porous building materials, like insulation, were sealed in plastic to prevent exposure to moisture and dust. In total, 73% of the building materials were recycled and over 47% of the materials were locally acquired.
