McKessons office building earns Energy Star honor
McKesson Specialty Health’s Woodlands office was awarded the prestigious Energy Star by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Buildings that earn the Energy Star use 35 percent less energy and generate 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar buildings.
McKesson has more than 640 employees working in the 200,000-square-foot office building.
“McKesson Specialty Health is part of The Woodlands community, and its employees are proud to be here,” said Brad Faber, director of facility operations for McKesson Specialty Health. “Making sure we do our part for the community and the environment we live in is important to us. We’re honored that we were awarded the Energy Star, and we are dedicated as a company to continue to be environmentally conscious and responsible.”
Energy Star is a joint program of the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy to save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient practices. McKesson Specialty Health’s headquarters building has been identified as one of the most efficient buildings in the nation.
The McKesson Specialty Health office is located at 10101 Woodloch Forest in The Woodlands. The facility includes a fitness center with a virtual trainer, on-site café, TelePresence video conferencing and emergency operations capabilities. In support of Energy Star standards, the building design uses principles to allow energy conservation due to a white roof that helps reflect heat, plumbing fixtures that operate with low water usage and light fixtures that provide sufficient light while consuming less energy.
