Solberg Headquarters in Green Bay, Wisconsin Receives LEED Certification

Solberg LEED Certification

 

June 4, 2014

 

The Solberg Company announced today that the headquarters/manufacturing facility located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has been awarded Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Certification.

LEED is a third party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2000 through a consensus based process, LEED serves as a tool for buildings of all types and sizes. LEED certification offers third party validation of a project’s green features and verifies that the building is operating exactly the way it was designed to.  Solberg’s certification process took eighteen months to complete.

“LEED is a direct complement to our product strategy of developing and commercializing high-performance, environmentally sustainable firefighting foam concentrates like RE-HEALING™ Foam, the first multi-certified fluorosurfactant, fluoropolymer-free firefighting foam for Class B fuel fires,” explained Solberg’s General Manager, Steve Hansen. “LEED building criteria included: sustainable sites, water efficiency, waste efficiency, energy and atmosphere, indoor environmental quality and innovation in design. In short, we live the environment in everything we do.”

The Green Bay facility totals 20,750 square feet (19282) of floor space within two buildings located on 10 acres of land. The manufacturing/warehouse/office building encompasses 16,650 square feet (15472). A separate 4,100 square foot (3822) building – 64 ft. high (20m) is a state-of-the-art fire research and test laboratory where firefighting foam products are developed and tested to industry compliance standards.
