Objective: Provide mechanical equipment for a LEED® Platinum HVAC system.

Work Completed: What began as a dream in 2002 recently became reality for members of Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 as the group unveiled its new $15 million LEED Platinum certified headquarters in St. Louis. Rock Hill Mechanical Corp. and Thermal Mechanics Inc. provided the majority of the HVAC equipment including a Maverick™ II 40-ton rooftop system, a RoofPak™ 42-ton rooftop system with a heat recovery wheel, a Vision™ indoor air-handling unit, and Daikin split system units from McQuay International. The 95,000-square-foot building boasts several LEED Platinum contributing features including a roof rainwater collection and irrigation cistern system, four wind turbines, geothermal systems, solar domestic hot water systems, and 357 photovoltaic panels. LEED Platinum status, the highest ranking given by the U.S. Green Building Council, requires a facility meets a minimum of 52 green requirements. The highest number of achievable points is 69. The Local 36 facility fulfilled 64 of those benchmarks.

“This new facility will help us remain on the cutting edge of technology. It’s our duty to maintain and improve the industry that those before us have worked so hard to build, and this project shows our commitment to that purpose.”

— David C. Zimmermann, president and business manager, Local 36
