Sheetz Shwellness Center Earns LEED Gold Certification
Opened in 2012, the 11,000-square-foot Sheetz Shwellness Center has just become Blair County’s first LEED-certified building. The LEED Gold facility is an employee health and wellness center located near Altoona, Pennsylvania adjacent to the distribution center for the Sheetz convenience store chain. evolveEA assisted the design and construction team with aspects of the LEED certification process, and attended Sheetz’s Earth Day ceremony where Joe Sheetz, President and CEO of Sheetz, was presented with the LEED Gold Certificate by Mike Schiller, Executive Director of the Green Building Alliance, Pittsburgh chapter of USGBC.
evolveEA’s LEED consulting for the project included project commissioning, LEED coaching and creation of a Green Building Education Plan that provides explanations of the building’s sustainability highlights through guided tours, in-place signage, and an information brochure. We are proud to have contributed to the diligent effort put forth by the Sheetz in-house architects, designers and builders who worked with other talented partners to create a space promoting healthy and ecologically-minded living. More information about the Shwellness Center can be found on this Sheetz website. Congratulations to Sheetz on this great achievement!
