Commitment to Sustainability
BASF’s North American headquarters building in The Green at Florham Park, New Jersey is a live demonstration of BASF’s innovation in action, and is an example of our fundamental commitment to sustainability. Achieving dual LEED® Platinum standards, the building features a variety of BASF-enabled construction products that lower energy consumption and increase building life expectancy. Its 325,000 square feet are a vision of contemporary architectural design, with unique features that promote comfort and collaboration while minimizing the site’s environmental footprint.
Modern furnishings and bright, open spaces make the headquarters a refreshing, energizing place to work. Outside, twenty-foot cantilevers at both ends-coupled with vertical stone fins and horizontal sun shades on the building’s exterior-create a striking, functional facade that embodies BASF.
As one of New Jersey’s largest sustainable buildings, the BASF North America Headquarters raises the bar for water efficiency, indoor air quality and lighting, energy consumption and construction materials.
Low-flow plumbing fixtures reduce indoor water usage by an estimated 40 percent, while the landscape plan incorporates native and non-invasive plants that require 85 percent less water to survive. Collected rainwater is filtered, cleaned and reused, both as irrigation and as the primary water source for the toilets. Source: BASF.
With dual LEED® Platinum Certifications for both core and shell as well as tenant fit-out, the headquarters is one of the greenest buildings in New Jersey.
Natural daylight illuminates 75 percent of the interior, and 90 percent of the space looks out onto a lush park-like setting.
