Mericle believes a sincere commitment to environmental stewardship is essential to any successful real estate development. The great majority of our approximately 250 employees grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and we take pride in creating quality jobs for our neighbors in ways that are in harmony with the region’s ecosystem. We construct our buildings with the least possible environmental impact and do our best to maximize the preservation of natural areas.
We are very proud of our efforts to blend business with nature in our most successful project to date, the national, award-winning CenterPoint Commerce and Trade Park.
The start of construction in CenterPoint coincided with Mericle’s launch of its Green Building Program—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 LED lighting and HVAC systems, improving ventilation and indoor air quality, and using native and adaptive landscaping and recycled/regional materials, Mericle is making a concerted effort to “go green.”
