In 2008, Aztech Locknut embarked on a project to convert their conventional building in pursuit of LEED for Existing Buildings certification.  Currently all the requirements toward a LEED Gold certification have been installed and are functional in the building and they are now in the midst of their 12-month performance period to during which the building is monitoring and documenting data for various LEED credits.  This case study and tour will walk you through the various operational areas of the company highlighting the 42 environmental attributes of the building that are not typically found in this type of industrial facility.  You will see that the company has been through some effort and expense to install and operate these special features.  The reasons for pursuing the building retrofits has been fourfold, 1) employee comfort and satisfaction, 2) increased business opportunities, 3) savings from lower utility and maintenance costs and 4) increased property value.  All four of these justifications for the effort have been realized to the extent projected at the development stage of the transformation.
