Bayer MaterialScience Sustainable Building Materials Contribute to LEED-CI Gold Level Certification at North American Headquarters in Pittsburgh

September 10 2012

The company’s Pittsburgh headquarters earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Commercial Interior (LEED-CI) gold-level certification for a renovated office building on its campus.

The renovation at Bayer MaterialScience LLC’s Pittsburgh headquarters included installation of more energy-efficient systems for heating, cooling and plumbing, as well as selection of sustainable construction materials, many of which feature Bayer products, including:

Makrolon MAK clear polycarbonate sheet, which is used for the work stations, allowing natural light to filter throughout the workplace.


Makrolon polycarbonate resin used in LED (light-emitting diode) light fixture lenses.

Technogel polyurethane material which is incorporated into the employee and guest seating, providing greater ergonomic comfort.

Gthurm windows, a line of energy-efficient windows, produced by Graham Architectural Products. Installed in the building’s lobby, they employ a polyurethane composite using resin supplied by Bayer.

The renovations made to achieve this LEED-CI gold level certification are part of a $17 million “Workspace of the Future” project encompassing several other buildings on the Pittsburgh campus. Insulation upgrades, installation of energy-efficient windows and LED lighting in three additional buildings are complete.
