Herman Miller Building B West - Zeeland
Originally designed by George Nelson in 1968 as Herman Miller's seating production facility, Building B underwent a dramatic conversion in 1980 to become the company's primary administrative center. In 2008, major renovation of the west section again dramatically transformed Building B, earning the company's 13th LEED certified space. B-West, encompassed within the Main Site in Zeeland, Michigan, utilized several strategies to earn LEED-CI Gold. C2 Climate Control desktop units provide individual thermal control to workers. More than 40% of materials and furnishings were purchased within 500 miles. Herman Miller utilizes 100% renewable energy to power its operations, and moveable plants and trees replaced walls, bringing employees closer to nature, while screening private workspaces from high traffic pathways.
