[2:16] As a global construction-services company in St. Louis, Missouri, Alberici sought to lead the transformation of the design and construction industry by renovating a 485-foot-long manufacturing plant into its new Class-A corporate headquarters. The desire to convey resource efficiency, integrated design, and corporate responsibility prompted Alberici to achieve substantial resource and cost savings by combining various strategies, including:
- Building adaptive reuse
- High-performance envelope
- On-site renewable technologies
- Passive ventilation
- Habitat regeneration
- Aggressive construction waste and recycling programs
Alberici’s HQ received a Platinum rating under the LEED for New Construction rating system, but this building isn’t just about its certification. The 106,000 sf structure costs half as much in utilities as the company’s prior structure (about 70,000 sf) and Alberici believes that will pay dividends going forward.
