ECO Design – Milliken Contract Showroom NYC – LEED Gold Certified
Floor covering manufacturer Milliken Contract new showroom in New York receives LEED Gold Certified.
The site was selected with LEED criteria in mind, the space offers an abundance of natural light and views of Manhattan. The design team includes design firm Q Studio; architect of record Mancini-Duffy; and LEED administrators Catalyst Partners. To earn LEED-CI certification, special attention is paid to lighting design, the HVAC system, and location (access to public transportation). Bathrooms will be refitted and flooring will consist of adhesive-free Milliken carpet.
Sustainable features include low-energy ceramic metal halide lamps; daylight sensors; formaldehyde-free, 100 percent recovered and recycled wood fiber MDF; and low VOC paint applied throughout. Since Milliken is the leaseholder of the building, the firm was also able to upgrade the plumbing and HVAC system.
