Bobcat logoDoosan Bobcat North America was awarded LEED Gold certification for the expansion and remodeling of its West Fargo, North Dakota, headquarters.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification, awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), recognizes buildings that aim to reduce environmental impact during the planning, construction and occupancy stages.

Doosan Bobcat completed a $9.5 million expansion of its North American headquarters in 2017, doubling the footprint to 110,000 sq. ft., the company says.

According to Doosan Bobcat, specific sustainability highlights of the facility include decreased energy consumption by 35 percent; use of green power renewable energy to offset 53 percent of the building’s energy costs; utilized recycling to divert 77 percent of on-site construction waste for 12 percent of building materials; upgrades to geothermal HVAC installation and ventilation monitoring systems; and more.

“As a leader in the industry with high standards for quality and innovation, we are extremely proud to receive LEED Gold certification and have our headquarters reflect those values,” says Mike Ballweber, president of Doosan Bobcat North America. “Our goal is to provide a space that operates sustainably and supports our employees with a healthy and inspiring workplace.”

The expanded headquarters houses employees working in administrative, engineering, finance, IT, marketing, product management and sales, Doosan Bobcats says.

The West Fargo headquarters is the the second Doosan Bobcat building in North Dakota to earn LEED recognition, joining the Doosan Bobcat Acceleration Center in Bismarck, which received LEED certification in 2018.
