In September 2017, we broke ground to implement solar power at our Waverly, Iowa, office. Throughout the system’s 25-year life expectancy, we’ll reduce our carbon footprint by more than 9,000 tons of carbon dioxide. That’s equivalent to:

  • Planting more than 200,000 trees
  • Recycling 28,000 tons of waste
  • Reducing carbon dioxide emissions of about 1,000 homes
  • Burning more than 8,000,000 pounds of coal
We’re also mindful of other factors that contribute to indoor environmental sustainability. This includes interior lighting, sunshades, daylighting, triple pane glass, quality views, acoustics and more.
