Construction of a new 22,800sf corporate headquarters for Heine USA, a medical device manufacturer based in Germany. The facility is registered with USGBC with a goal of obtaining LEED silver certification.
Objectives: The owner wanted to design a building around sustainable principles with a concentration on features that provided the best payback. The end result is a highly efficient facility incorporating daylight harvesting, lighting controls, upgraded envelope, enhanced occupant comfort systems and high performance HVAC systems, with only a modest increase in the project budget.
Testimonials: “Heine USA retained Fulcrum Associates as Construction Manager for our North American headquarters, and challenged them with developing a highly efficient facility based on sustainable principles. Fulcrum worked closely with our architectural team to design and construct a facility that reflects Heine USA’s corporate values, while working within a responsible budget. Their tireless research of innovative energy saving products and strategies allowed us to make value based selections of products and services that will pay dividends for many years to come. During the construction phase Fulcrum demonstrated exemplary management skills, controlling schedule, budget and quality with great care and precision. They assembled a superb team of subcontractors, most of whom had long standing relationships with Fulcrum. The workmanship and attention to detail was of the highest quality, and after two years the building looks as good as the day we moved in.” Ben St. Jean President Heine North America
