Rockler Headquarters Overcomes Wide Temperature Imbalances

Aug 1, 2016 3:48:56 PM

Founded in 1954, Rockler Woodworking & Hardware is a specialty store dedicated to bringing woodworking enthusiasts the latest in technologies, while sustaining the natural resources that make woodworking possible. It was no surprise that they showcased the same level of commitment to bringing the latest in sustainable technology to their Medina, Minnesota headquarters while providing the best working environment for their employees.

Facility Manager, Rick White, had two main challenges. First, employees working in their call center and art department frequently reported thermal discomfort. “Our biggest problem was when we had the heater on, upstairs they were just roasting and downstairs was freezing,” states Facility and Production Manager, Richard White.

The second challenge was energy waste. The existing zoning system required a bypass damper. However, bypass dampers waste as much as 26% energy according to a 2013 study conducted by the California Utilities Statewide Codes and Standards Team. Rick was looking for a solution that would solve employee comfort issues without increasing their energy bills. Discover how these issue were turned around by viewing the below case study video.
