Aerzen USA Headquarters, Coatsville, PA

Aerzen USA is the US headquarters of a German manufacturer of high-pressure blowers and compressors used in the food and transportation industries.  The facility has achieved a Gold level of certification under the US Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Building Rating System for New Construction.  The 40,000 square foot facility, which was completed in March 2007,  consists of front office, assembly and repair, and warehouse spaces.  One of the key owner requirements was that the assembly and repair space provide superior comfort at all times of the year without the use of air conditioning. Low energy strategies were developed to meet the energy goals of the project while providing superior comfort.

Strategies include:
  • Vertical Closed Loop Geothermal Heat Pump System
  • Earth Tubes
  • Radiant Heat
  • High Volume / Velocity Fans
  • Daylight Harvesting
