The Melink headquarters is a high-performance building which uses energy and conservation practices that are at the forefront of the green-building movement. Power usage is controlled by a distribution system. Dual-flush toilets and waterless urinals help to cut down water use by 40%. Approximately 90% of construction waste was recycled. After installing several systems, including a solar photovoltaic array on top of the Melink Headquarters, and installing a low wind turbine which generates electricity at night, Melink’s headquarters was recognized in 2010 as the first building in Ohio to achieve LEED Platinum certification in the category of Existing Buildings from the US Green Building Council, one of only 100 buildings nationally to receive this rating. Now the office building manages to save about $35,000 per year in energy expenses.
