With the assistance of Entegrity, American Eagle Outfitters Distribution Center located in Hazleton, PA was awarded Silver level of certification through the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building program.
American Eagle Outfitters Hazleton Distribution Center is a 1.65 million square foot distributing and office center complete with on-site gym, training rooms and cafeteria located in the Humboldt Industrial Park in Hazleton, PA. This facility is the third distribution center for American Eagle Outfitters in North America.
The decision related to the pursuit of LEED certification was not determined until late in the construction process. The project team was able to make a number of modifications to improve the sustainable features of the facility including plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, site lighting, landscape and irrigation design, preferred parking, other impacts.
