O’FALLON, ILL. — St. Louis based Vertegy — a design, procurement and construction consulting service for green and sustainable facilities — has helped guide the sustainable design of the recently completed Frieze Harley-Davidson dealership located in O’Fallon. The 33,000-square-foot, LEED Gold-certified building, which houses a showroom and maintenance shop, is the first LEED-certified Harley-Davidson dealership in the United States. Partially powered by wind turbine, the facility was constructed with insulated concrete forms, creating an energy-efficient structural wall system that provides an insulation R-value of 40. Additional sustainable elements of the facility include rapidly renewable bamboo wood flooring, an innovative lighting system and a radiant floor system in the maintenance shop, which is heated from burnt waste oil. Trumpet Builders acted as the general contractor for the project, and Karasek Architects designed the new facility. The cost of completion was not disclosed.
