Sustainable Design Features & Benefits

Our logistics real estate facilities integrate geographically relevant, sustainable design features, including:

Skylights and clerestory windows Using natural light lowers electricity use and associated greenhouse gas emissions, and improves indoor environmental quality for warehouse personnel.
High-reflectance roof membranes Traditionally, warehouses have black ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) rubber roofing membranes that absorb heat from sunlight. White thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing, also known as “cool roofs,” offers equal performance at essentially the same cost, while reducing the urban heat island effect and often providing a more comfortable work environment. They can also lower operating costs by reducing energy use in air-conditioned spaces.
Bicycle, hybrid and carpool vehicle parking Offering parking for alternative modes of transportation encourages lifestyle choices that reduce carbon emissions and promote health and well-being.
Recycled and locally sourced construction materials Using recycled concrete, steel, asphalt and other materials in new warehouse construction delivers significant environmental benefits, including minimizing transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions and diverting a large percentage of construction waste from the landfill.
Area for onsite recycling Supporting customer recycling efforts helps reduce landfill waste and use of virgin resources.
Energy-efficient lighting systems Warehouses traditionally use metal halide lighting, but most of our portfolio uses energy-efficient fluorescent and LED lighting technology, often including occupancy- and light-sensing controls to further reduce electricity consumption.
Water conservation measures Exterior landscaping, motion-activated faucets, low-flow toilets, waterless urinals and captured rainwater for irrigation all reduce the use of fresh water.
Low-emitting sealants, adhesives and carpet systems Compounds and chemicals with non-petroleum bases conserve nonrenewable resources and improve air quality for a healthier working environment.
Solar, storage and wind power Industrial warehouses are viable candidates for alternative energy systems, especially photovoltaic solar cells and battery storage.
