Kraft Distribution Center Tagged As LEED-CI Gold Facility

The U.S Green Building Council (USGBC) is a non-profit “community of leaders working to make green buildings available to everyone within a generation.”  Kraft Foods has constructed an 800,000 square-foot distribution center in Morris, IL (near Chicago), which the USGBC has recognized “for its advanced environmental design.” The construction of the distribution center was managed and developed by ProLogis.  The building improvements that were done under the “USGBC’s LEED Gold Certification program for Commercial Interiors, make the 800,000-square-foot Chicago-area distribution center Kraft’s first distribution center to receive LEED certification and the largest facility of its kind in the world to achieve LEED-CI Gold Certification.” Some of the environmental design elements include energy efficient lighting; an HVAC system that not only improves air quality but also reduces power consumption by 40%; material made from wood that was harvested from Forest Stewardship Council certified forests; the use of recycled and local materials; and finally almost 100% of construction wastes were diverted to recycling centers.
