ALDI’s Moreno Valley, CA distribution center and regional HQ received LEED Gold certification from the USGBC. The expanding German grocery chain opened the 835,000-square-foot facility earlier this year.
The first building in the 52-acre business park houses cold storage space, ambient dry storage, a two-story Class A corporate office,and space for break areas, locker rooms, support and trucker dispatch. ALDI, and design-build contractor, Oakbrook Terrace, IL-based Graycor Construction Co., collaborated with architects and engineers to improve the design and materials used in the development.
Among the sustainable building features installed include:
- Renewable energy from on-site solar panels that provide 60% of the facility’s electricity
- Ammonia refrigeration system, which is a naturally occurring element and highly energy efficient
- Electric vehicle charging stations and bicycle racks that promote the use of greener methods of transportation
- Water efficient landscaping and plumbing
