Polaris Wyoming facility achieves LEED certification

Dec '07
Polaris Industries Inc announced that its Research & Development site in Wyoming, MN has officially achieved the coveted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for new construction.

The LEED certification demonstrates Polaris' commitment to environmentally sound business practices.

Polaris' Wyoming site earned LEED certification by meeting the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) strict criteria designed to promote sustainability.

Numerous features that make the site more environmentally friendly were incorporated into the design to achieve LEED certification.

Some of these include: large windows and rooftop monitors to harness natural light for use indoors, water efficient landscaping throughout the site, a commitment to using local building materials manufactured within 500 miles of the site, low flow plumbing fixtures, an Energy Star rated roofing system, and a stormwater handling system that meets the EPA's best management practices.

"Our Wyoming facility represents the coupling of environmentally sound and financially sound business planning," said Bob Kollross, who oversaw the construction for Polaris.

"The goal of an environmentally sound facility with LEED certification was a major initiative for Polaris. The LEED certification is an honor we are extremely proud of.

This was a true team effort between Polaris and our project partners, Pope Associates Inc. and the RYAN Companies US, Inc."

From the onset of the project, Polaris management committed to achieving LEED certification. The sustainable design features are mutually beneficial to both the environment and the company.

As a result of following the LEED guidelines, the Wyoming site saves $53,728 annually in energy costs, uses 188,400 fewer gallons of water per year and conserved 343 tons of materials which would have otherwise ended up in landfills.
