- Ballantyne Campus Helps Earn Sustainability Award
With 63 ENERGY STAR certified buildings nationwide, we are committed to improving our communities through sustainable practices, energy-efficient strategies and environmentally-focused charitable initiatives to strive for a cleaner, greener world.
To earn the ENERGY STAR certification, Northwood Office fine-tuned building HVAC run times, setpoints and staggered starts via BAS Building Automation System. Top-rated mechanical contractors provided preventative maintenance services for all HVAC equipment three times per year. The team continued installing LED lighting, an initiative beginning in 2017, helping the Ballantyne portfolio obtain a 100 percent conversion to LED for all exterior lighting and interior common areas.
These efforts earned Northwood the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® 2022 Partner of the Year Award.
