Home News New Balance is nation’s first LEED V2009 Core & Shell Platinum Certification

The New Balance World Headquarters building has earned LEED Platinum certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) v2009 Core and Shell rating system. Located at 100 Guest St., in the Boston Landing neighborhood of Boston, the 250,000-square-foot facility is the first in the U.S. to achieve all possible credits in the Indoor Environmental Quality category under this rating system. There are only two other buildings in the world that have achieved this – one each in Italy and Thailand. 
New Balance’s building secured LEED Platinum certification because it has two green activities that achieved outcomes of energy efficient design, water use reduction, sustainable site selection and development, responsible materials selection and waste management, and enhanced indoor environmental quality
Additional project achievements include:

  • 26 percent annual energy cost savings when compared to a code-compliant building
  • 35 percent reduction in water consumption of plumbing fixtures when compared to a code-compliant building
  • 76 percent waste diversion during construction
  • 86 percent reduction in site runoff post-development when compared to pre-development
  • 28 percent of material used in construction derived from recycled content
  • 74 percent of material used in construction derived from a regional source
  • 100 percent of wood used in construction was Forest Stewardship Council certified
  • 30 percent higher ventilation rate when compared to a code-compliant building
  • All Regional Priority credits achieved
  • All Innovation credits achieved

The New Balance world headquarters facility broke ground in August 2013 and was completed in September 2015. It was designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects of Boston, built by John Moriarty Associates of Winchester, MA, and managed by Transwestern through their Boston office.
