Highest Certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

Armstrong World Industries' corporate headquarters building has received Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council under its LEED® Green Building Rating System™ for existing buildings.

Armstrong's headquarters, built in 1998, is only the sixth existing building – and the first outside of California – to achieve the highest certification offered.

Among the building's characteristics that contribute to its environmental performance are its:

Use of clean, renewable energy – 75% of the building's power is supplied by wind energy, the equivalent of planting 149,000 trees or removing 300 automobiles from the road;

Reduced energy use – Armstrong's headquarters uses less than 1.5 watts/square foot, half the nationwide average for comparable buildings;

Reduced water use – The building reduced water use from 800,000 gallons to 420,000 gallons;

Recycling program – 60% of the building's waste is recycled;

Maintenance – Environmentally responsible, Green Seal-certified cleaning products are used;

Improved acoustics – Armstrong acoustic ceilings and sound-absorbing surfaces are used throughout the building;

Landscaping – Eliminates irrigation and provides erosion control and measured storm-water run-off into adjoining wetlands.
