Perdue Farms Corporate Headquarters

Salisbury, MD

PERDUE FARMS CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS

This $10.5 million project was a complete renovation of the poultry company’s headquarters in Salisbury, Md. The building received LEED© Platinum certification – the highest possible rating – from the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green building certification program, the first such designation on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

The 94,000-square-foot facility, which houses 570 employees, incorporated many elements to meet that certification including an energy efficient HVAC system that will reduce the building’s energy expense by 25 percent.

Aspects of the corporate office that earned LEED recognition include:

  • Reused 99.6 percent of existing building envelope
  • Diverted 97 percent – 631 tons – of construction waste from landfill
  • 42.3 percent water reduction through low-flow plumbing fixtures
  • Reused 12.7 percent of total resources
  • 24.3 percent of materials content manufactured using recycled materials
  • 40.1 percent of building materials manufactured within 500 miles
  • 72.8 percent of wood-based products harvested from Forest Stewardship Council certified forests
  • Up to 95 percent of the energy demand for the Corporate Office is generated by the solar field during occupied daytime hours and, on average, the solar field supplies up to 40 percent of the total energy demand (daytime and nighttime hours combined).
  • Integrated carbon dioxide sensors and rooftop fresh air handlers help exceed minimum air quality standards by 30 percent (Source: American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers)
  • Nearly 40 percent reduction in utility demand through energy efficient HVAC, lighting and on-demand hot water heaters.
  • Bicycle racks encourage alternative transportation
  • Preferred parking for fuel-efficient vehicles
  • Previous patio pavers prevent storm water runoff
