Capital-Logistics-ThumbFebruary 24, 2016

HARRISBURG, Penn. - When Woodmont Properties kicked off its high-profile expansion of its core logistics center adjacent to the Harrisburg Airport, it represented a significant capital investment for industry in the area. The LEED Silver facility, the CLC Building 200, has over 400,000 sf of usable space and a building footprint of 332 feet wide by 1,205 feet long — about the size of about 6 football fields.

 

Sustainable Features | Focus On Energy and Water Efficiency

CCJM worked closely with the owner and contractor to ensure that the CLC Building 200 incorporated numerous energy efficiency measures. These measures include improved wall insulation and window glazing and efficient heating and interior lighting that demonstrated nearly 40% improvement over current building standards.

A Tenant lease agreement further ensures green practices including water efficient fixtures to provide the Facility with more than 20% overall water savings. The agreement designates use of Low-Emitting Materials reducing indoor air contaminants that are odorous, irritating and/or harmful to the comfort and well-being of installers and occupants.

Innovative Solutions

The CLC facility is located on a brown field previously contaminated with TCE (trichloroethylene) and PCE (tetrachloroethylene). Although the site was remediated, the owner and contractor took additional steps to minimize site disturbances by crushing the original concrete building and utilizing this material as backfill to raise the final floor elevation instead of excavating. Additionally, this concrete rubble did not need to be hauled to a landfill.

Careful coordination and a collaborative approach to design culminated in LEED Silver Certification under the LEED-CS v2009 Certification Review process.
