On May 19, Danfoss celebrated the move to its new North American headquarters to Baltimore Crossroads@95, a new 1,000-acre business park in White Marsh, MD. The 46,200-sq.-ft facility meets U.S. Green Building Council LEED for Commercial Interiors certification.

The facility’s sustainable and green design features a Danfoss’ AK2-SC 255 energy management system and many other efficiencies, such as:
  • A high-efficiency HVAC system
  • High-performance windows
  • Lavatories featuring low water volume toilets and waterless urinals
  • A white thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing system
  • Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood
  • Drought-tolerant landscaping and plants
  • Low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints, carpets and adhesives.
The AK2-SC 255 controller manages both the lighting and HVAC in the facility. Motion sensors ensure lights are turned off in unoccupied areas. The warehouse area features skylights, ceiling lights that can be cycled off in two stages, and super-efficient T-5 fluorescent light fixtures.

All heating and air conditioning systems are controlled by smart thermostats mounted in each area; the thermostats help maximize energy efficiency.

Note: Danfoss’ address has changed to 11655 Crossroads Circle, Baltimore, MD 21220-2863. However, the company’s telephone number [410/931-8250], fax number [410/931-8256] and email address [baltimore@danfoss.com] remain the same.
