Osborn provided LEED® enhanced commissioning services for the new corporate headquarters facility for Nordson Corporation. With direct operations in 30 countries worldwide, Nordson Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer of systems that apply adhesives, sealants and coatings during manufacturing operations.
Osborn’s Commissioning services met the requirements for Enhanced Commissioning per the LEED®-NC (New Construction – Version 3) guidelines. Nordson’s 28,000 sf facility headquarters opened in November 2010. The facility was awarded LEED® Silver certification due to sustainable features including energy optimized lighting; HVAC and water systems; a partial green roof planted with native vegetation; a parking lot and landscape design that mitigates storm water generation; reflective white roofing materials that reduce heat island effects; and regionally sourced and recycled construction materials.
