Project Innovation Series: Heitman Architects - Method Manufacturing

  • BuiltWorlds 1130 West Monroe Street Chicago, IL, 60607 United States

For the next installment of our ongoing Project Innovation Series, meet the team behind Chicago's acclaimed Method Manufacturing facility, the project that has spawned a “clean industrial revolution” while achieving LEED Platinum Certification, a first for manufacturing. Method already has been celebrated as much for its role in the renewal of Chicago's historic Pullman neighborhood as for its many sustainable features, which include a 600-kw, 230-ft-tall wind turbine, rotating solar trees that track the sun, and the world's largest rooftop farm. Designer Heitman Architects, general contractor Summit Design + Build, urban agriculture pioneer Gotham Greens, and sustainability consultants KJWW Engineering all will be on hand to discuss the collaboration that launched an instant icon.
