NPL Construction CO.

NPL Construction Co. Has completed a two-story 50,366 SF regional operations center in the West Valley area of greater metro Phoenix. The 10.7 acre site is located in a suburban context near the University of Phoenix Stadium. The facility includes private and open offices, plus all typical support and ancillary spaces. The building also contains a warehouse for materials handling and storage that is cooled through evaporative cooling techniques. In preparation for future growth, the second floor of the facility contains built-out space for expansion needs. Energy efficiency is paramount for the facility, which utilizes a Building Management System, LED technology and an integrated photovoltaic system that offsets 28% of the building’s energy use.

 

Sustainable Strategies

  • High-performance, reflective roofing system reduces the Urban Heat Island Effect and improves energy efficiency

  • Enhanced HVAC system reduces environmental and economic impacts of excessive energy use

  • Low-flow plumbing fixtures reduce domestic water use

  • Low VOC-emitting construction materials and furniture were installed within the building envelope, improving indoor air quality and enhancing employee productivity

  • Regionally sourced materials with recycled content were utilized during the construction process

  • Ineterated Construction Waste Management Program diverted more than 124 tons of waste from landfills

Project Results

  • LEED for New Construction GOLD level achieved

  • 28% energy offset through on-site renewable energy systems

  • 63% energy cost savings above ASHRAE 90.1-2007 energy standard

  • 32% savings of potable water for domestic use

  • 78% of construction waste was diverted from the landfill
