Dansko Corporate Headquarters

Dansko Corporate Headquarters Building, West Grove, PA

Dansko’s 81,000 square foot corporate headquarters building, completed in March 2009, is a leading example of sustainable design. The building has been awarded LEED®-NC Gold certification and incorporates many unique features including underfloor air supply, a green roof, a living wall and radiant floor heating. In Posse staff prepared the LEED® energy model to document energy optimization for the project and also provided fundamental commissioning® under the LEED® Green Building Rating System. The energy model showed a calculated energy cost savings of greater than 33% when compared to the ASHRAE 90.1-2004 Appendix G baseline resulting in 7 points being awarded under the LEED® Energy & Atmosphere credit 1 for Optimized Energy Performance. Building systems commissioned included underfloor air supply system, daylight responsive lighting controls, radiant floor heating and a sophisticated direct digital controls system. Our team played a key role in making sure the complex building systems worked in an integrated manner.
