On the 14th August 2015 Analog Devices European Research and Development Centre became the first office building in Ireland to achieve the LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of accreditation possible under the US Green Building Councils’ Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design.
PUNCH is proud to have been involved in the project from inception to completion, including the final drive to boost the LEED rating from Gold to Platinum. PUNCH had direct responsibility for four of the eighty credits required and were involved as part of a multidisciplinary design team in the award of twenty more.
Credits are awarded for the selection of sustainable sites, water & energy efficiency, sustainable use of materials & resources, indoor environmental quality, regional priority and innovation in design. PUNCH input was primarily in the sustainable site selection and water efficiency categories, including the award of a credit for innovation in design under the category of storm water quantity control.
