High performance buildings for industrial applications contribute to financial, unit cost, productivity and quality goals.
- Continuous monitoring and technologies enabling the precise management of facility temperature and humidity levels help reduce defects in manufacturing processes, such as pharmaceuticals, which must operate under strict climate control parameters.
- Energy costs typically represent 30 percent of a building’s budget. Improving energy efficiency reduces costs and helps keep manufacturers globally competitive.
- Quality working conditions with the right temperature, humidity levels, acoustics and ventilation can improve productivity by as much as 18 percent, reduce absenteeism and improve employee retention.
An increasing number of corporations are leveraging high performance green buildings to build brand equity. Sixty-six percent of U.S. corporations believe that sustainability efforts provide competitive advantages through market differentiation.
