Saint-Gobain Research Center, LEED Gold

LEED Saint-Gobain certification, Research Center, Yegorуevsk




Saint-Gobain Laboratory Complex is located in the city of Yegoryevsk, Moscow region. The building is intended for research and testing of the products of the Weber-Vetonit dry building mixes plant. The facility has a dense shell with high heat transfer resistance, ventilation with recuperation, LED lighting with presence sensors, an automatic temperature control system in rooms for radiators and for air conditioning. Heating is provided by highly efficient gas boilers. The air conditioning system can operate in the heat pump mode for heating in the off-season. The building is also equipped with a monitoring system for energy consumption and air quality. The construction used environmentally friendly building materials produced by the Saint-Gobain group, as well as FSC wood.


Our role:

Ensuring compliance with the requirements of the LEED certification system for new construction during the design and construction process, including:

  • development of technical specifications for the designer and contractor
  • coordination of mathematical modeling and development of energy-efficient solutions
  • monitoring the implementation of LEED requirements in the design and construction
  • process passing LEED examination in the USA
  • acceptance of engineering systems (Commissioning)


Key achievements:

The building has received a LEED Gold certificate. The measures helped to improve the following indicators of sustainable development:

  • the use of personal transport decreased by 43%, due to the organization of bus routes, the provision of bicycle parking with showers and the organization of parking for low-emission cars with Euro 6 class.
  • drinking water consumption decreased by 62%, due to the use of water-saving plumbing, waterless urinals
  • all rainwater is collected and directed to production needs
  • energy consumption costs are reduced by 25%
  • containers for separate waste collection are provided
  • comfort satisfaction in the building is approximately 31% higher than in other similar facilities
