Saint-Gobain, one of the world’s largest building materials companies, based in France, recently announced the official opening of its new North American headquarters in Malvern, Pa.
The 320,000-square-foot campus, situated on 65 acres, underwent a renovation over the past 18 months to transform the site into a showcase for Saint-Gobain and its North American construction materials subsidiary, CertainTeed Corp. The opening marks the culmination of a yearlong celebration commemorating Saint-Gobain’s 350th anniversary.
The E. Kahn Development Corp. and J. Loew & Associates Inc., in collaboration with AEGON USA Realty Advisors LLC, led the headquarters’ redesign. It is a high-performance, sustainable building designed to achieve the highest level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). It is the only commercial building to have an interior and exterior that is certified LEED v3 Platinum by the USGBC in the state of Pennsylvania, according to the published USGBC database.
