Toledo, Ohio - The Owens Corning World Headquarters in Toledo was built in 1997 and received the LEED Silver certification for Existing Buildings 10 years later in 2007. The building’s program includes office space, cafeteria, conference rooms, mutli-media room, a health clinic and other support facilities. The main office space follows the river’s curve, provides views of the water as well as access to daylight. High efficiency lighting is also used throughout the building. Instantaneous changes in space planning can be completed without outside contractors thanks to the building’s efficient and flexible mechanical system.
