Mericle started a Green Building Program several years ago with a commitment to provide lower operating costs to tenants through the implementation of eco-friendly, energy-saving measures. By constructing tight building envelopes, installing energy-efficient T-bay lighting and HVAC systems, improving ventilation and indoor air quality, and by using native and adaptive landscaping and recycled/regional materials, we are making a concerted effort to “go green.”
We also pioneered the development of LEED® certified industrial buildings in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
LEED® stands for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” and is a national industry measurement tool created by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to define the industry’s most environmentally conscious projects.
LEED® provides third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
