More Than Just Fun And Games
This project team left nothing to chance when it came to designing a five-story mixed-space facility for a Chicago gaming company.
In 2009, WMS Industries, Inc. launched a company-wide green initiative. In addition to implementing everyday conservational strategies throughout their facilities, they made a public pledge to seek LEED certification for all newly constructed facilities.
ACHIEVING IT ALL
|OTHER GREEN INITIATIVES|
Beyond an efficient HVAC system, other sustainable initiatives employed at WMS include a BAS, energy efficient lighting and occupancy sensors, high-performance insulation, low-flow/motion detected bathroom fixtures, and a rain harvesting system, reducing the building’s carbon footprint and utility use in just about every way possible.
“Water consumption in the new Chicago Technology Center is about 30% less than our other buildings because our water closest and urinals now make use of our rain harvesting system,” said Todd Clark, director of global facilities at WMS. “Surprisingly, the building also houses our café and fitness center, where water consumption is heavy.”
