Description: Seven Buildings in the campus-style industrial complex is going for LEED Gold certification

Statement of design approach: To provide a LEED Gold rated facility / campus with a high quality work environment.

Cashman Equipment is the headquarters for the largest heavy equipment dealer in Nevada. The 300,000sf, seven building campus on 56 acres is located along a major thoroughfare in Henderson, Nevada. The campus includes a diverse set of building types including: Administration, Warehouse, Retail Parts, Heavy Equipment Shops, Retail Rental and Service, Electric Power Generator Sales and Services and various welding, wash, staging and storage areas. The main building features a three story administration tower connected to the warehouse and shop area through a glass enclosed parts and retail link. The two story main lobby functions as an equipment display area and sales floor for the equipment. Throughout the project, the client demanded a high level of consideration for employee amenities and a high quality work environment. Employee locker rooms, interior and exterior break areas, a central cafeteria and multiple training rooms are arranged throughout the complex. A second criteria of the client was for a LEED
rated facility. The architect's design is for a Gold rated LEED campus. This is achieved through a variety of components including: geothermal ground source heat pumps, white roofs, enhanced landscaping in parking areas, drought tolerant landscaping, abundant natural light in 90% of the interior spaces, daylight and occupancy sensor controlled high output lighting fixtures, materials within a 500 mile radius abundant recycled products and a construction recycling program. The building is design for an average 43% savings in energy operating costs. The entire campus is unified through a subtle, uniform color and material palette on all the buildings. Concrete tilt-up panels are painted two shades of gray and accented with tinted glazing and metal panels. "Caterpillar Yellow" is used sparingly as an accent color to allow the equipment to be the main focus.
