Statement of Design Approach:
Cashman Equipment had three design goals: 1) a highly efficient
work environment, 2) as sustainable as possible and 3)
maintain the Caterpillar corporate identity. The campus is laid
out on 56 acres with separate buildings for different operations/
functions within the company. The buildings are all tied together
with similar materials and color schemes but each building has
a unique appearance. The Caterpillar Corporate Yellow is used
sparingly as accents on the exterior and interior.
Cashman Equipment is comprised of seven buildings totalling
300,000 sf on 56 acres. The LEED Gold Certified complex
is designed to handle warehouse operations, large equipment
sales/service/repair, equipment rental, employee training, retail
sales and corporate administrative functions. Each building on
campus has a distinct character, but they are unified by a common
material and color palette. The work environments are designed
to provide abundant natural light and ventilation in the shop
and warehouse areas as well as office areas. Employee comfort
and parity were key issues in designing all spaces. One of the
most significant features of Cashman Equipment is sustainability.
The entire campus is designed to exceed a LEED Gold rating.
To achieve this, the entire complex is serviced by an underground
geothermal system to reduce HVAC operating costs by
as much as 45%. Abundant natural light in 90% of occupied
spaces coupled with solar shading control with exterior louvers
and interior shades controlled by automatic sun sensors reduces
lighting and HVAC costs as well. All interior lighting systems are
controlled by occupancy and daylight sensors to further reduce
utility costs. The building uses a high percentage of recycled
products such as terrazzo tile with recycled glass aggregate, fabrics
of 100% recycled polyester, carpet with recycled yarn, and
lockers made from recycled milk cartons.
Cashman Equipment is LEED Gold Certified.
Human Scale - The 56 acre, seven building campus is interconnected
through an internal pedestrian walkways, courtyards

corridor with public transportation and the company has a carpool
program, a hybrid vehicle program, motorcycle and bicycle
Vibrant Public Spaces - The campus features a public trail system
with art and furniture created from recycled equipment parts.
Create Identity - The city envisioned this area, and particularly
this project, as a gateway to the city.
Protect Resources - LEED Gold, Ground source geo-thermal
heat pump heating and cooling system, recycled rock for sub
base, occupancy and daylight sensors, recycled interior and
exterior building components, cradle to cradle furniture systems
and xeriscape landscaping for water reduction.
Design Matters - Making a heavy equipment, industrial
building a good neighbor.
