Challenge: Nordson Corporation looked to build its new world headquarters in Westlake, Ohio. When the design team began to investigate the site they quickly realized that the adjacent site was a protected wetland and could not accept any runoff from the headquarters parking surfaces. They set out on a path to design and build with awareness of the environment.
Solution: The very low runoff coefficient, due to the high infiltration rate of Eco Optiloc made it the product of choice for the design team. In addition this paver and the selected color, River Blend, were able to add credits towards LEED Certification.
