New Belgium Project Awarded LEED Certification
New Belgium’s commitment to conservation has resulted in the achievement of LEED certification for their Asheville, NC distribution center. ARCO Beverage Group and design/build architect, Finkle Williams, designed the facility to use 25% less energy than a traditional building and included LED lighting which uses 20% less energy than a conventional lighting system. For construction of the building, ARCO and New Belgium sourced a majority of the materials locally with 84% being manufactured within 500 miles of the site. In addition, the project prioritized recycling and diverted 82% of onsite construction waste from landfills.
