Frieze Harley-Davidson Gets LEED Gold

Frieze Harley-Davidson 0345

We’re seeing all sorts of companies going for LEED Certification, and the most macho of motorcycle manufacturers is no different.  Just recently, the USGBC announced that the Frieze Harley-Davidson Dealership in O’Fallon, Illinois has been LEED Certified at the Gold level.  It’s the first, LEED Harley-Davidson dealership in the Nation.  The 33,000 sf dealership was sustainably designed and built with ICFs with an R-value of forty.  Plus, with over forty Solatubes and all the various green elements that led to a credible Gold certification, it’s also partially powered by a wind turbine. 

Frieze Harley-Davidson is expected to be ~40% more efficient than a structure built by standard construction methods.

The state-of-the-art Harley-Davidson dealership was designed by Karasek Architects, with Vertegy as sustainable consultant and Trumpet Builders as general contractor.  Additional green features include a radiant floor system heated from burned waste oil, renewable bamboo wood flooring, zero- and low-VOC everything, and naturally landscaped grounds and drought tolerant plantings, etc.

    ne of the most recognizable features of the turbine building of the store is installed to save energy. The Skystream 2.4 kW is mounted on a 60 ‘tower to maximize the amount of wind caught, and should produce 4,200 kWh of electricity per year.
