Roche Building Awarded LEED® Gold Certification
Date:6/20/2011

r 2009.

The construction manager for the project was Sordoni Construction Co., Bedminster, NJ.  The first occupants moved into the new space in March 2010. Building 76, with approx. 321,000 sq. ft., was constructed in 1963.

"A core group of committed, hard working Roche people devoted a lot of time and energy for several years to successfully complete this important renovation and achieve Gold LEED certification," said Jim Poliseo, Vice President, Facility Management and Engineering at Roche. "Their teamwork and excellence in execution symbolize the winning spirit found within Roche Nutley," he added.

Gold LEED certification of the Building 76 renovation was based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impacted the project itself and the broader community. These features include:

  • New glass that reduces heat loss from the building by 73% and increases the shading effect by 50% over the original glass
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paints, recycled glass and renewable flooring
  • High-recycled content materials used for acoustical ceilings, flooring, masonry and furniture
  • Day-light harvesting: sensors that automatically adjust lights in response to the amount of daylight
  • Innovative chilled beams to offset heat gain
  • Water reduction strategies, which lowered usage by more than 35% compared to similar buildings
  • When the outside temperature and humidity conditions are suitable, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems utilize outside air to meet the building's heating or cooling requirements; utilization of outside air reduces the fuel to heat and the electricity to cool the air. Additional energy is saved by reducing the distribution of steam and chilled water
  • Occupancy sensors in workstations that turn off all components except the computer when the workstation is vacant and turn on power when it's
