Knauf InsulationGreenfield, Indiana
The new Engineering Building, located on Knauf Insulation’s campus in Greenfield, Indiana, is a two-story 24,860 square foot facility that accommodates 44 new offices but can be configured to hold up to 50.
In addition to Corporate Engineering, Corporate Human Resources and Product & Process Development offices, the facility houses a 126-seat “Knauf Academy” classroom with video conferencing, state-of-the-art conference rooms and an employee fitness center. Sustainability considerations were integral to the design. Sun-shaded windows to the south and “daylight harvesting” were strategically used to reduce the need for electricity to light and cool the space. This facility is LEED Gold Certified and uses 30% less energy and water than a typical building of the same size.
