Saint Gobain/Certain TEED

East Whiteland Township, Chester County, PA

The redevelopment of 20 Moores Road on the 65 acre AEGON Campus has created a new North American Headquarters for Saint-Gobain/ CertainTeed, the world’s largest building materials firm. The resulting $80 million headquarters is a 320,000 sf; LEED Platinum certified facility built with many of their own materials.  

Working closely with the DEP, East Whiteland Township officials, the Chester County Conservation District, and the developer, Nave Newell provided civil engineering services, secured land development approvals, and an NPDES permit within a Special Protection Watershed in less than 3 months. This was a challenging feat for a site with woods, fields, a pond, even a branch of Valley Creek running through. Despite all of that, we obtained a “redevelopment” waiver, one of the first in PADEP’s Southeast Regional Office for the existing building, within the buffer. We also utilized priority review to obtain the NPDES permit in 45 days.
