Vaisala

Finland-based Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental and industrial measurements sought to build a new U.S. headquarters office building in Louisville that would exemplify the company’s commitment to sustainability. The architecture and interior design project is composed of a new building adjacent to the company’s existing building, which creates a fluid, indoor/outdoor campus for customers, employees, researchers and partners.

In addition to paying homage to the company’s Scandinavian headquarters with crisp, modern, minimalist spaces, the overall project is Net Zero Energy due to its sustainable design elements such the solar array, VRF mechanical system and double skin curtainwall facade. Glazing was carefully placed to balance daylight, views and thermal efficiency. The final product showcases the extraordinarily low energy use with EUI of 28 that far surpasses energy-use codes, making it one of Colorado’s most sustainable office buildings. The office also utilizes Cross Laminated Timber flooring throughout.
