Raven Industries adds green rooftop to its environmentally friendly design

Posted: Updated:

Over the past three years, the Raven Industries Headquarters in downtown Sioux Falls have undergone some major renovations, all in an effort to make the building more environmentally friendly.

The historic headquarters were stripped down to a basic skeletal level, then rebuilt to incorporate the historical elements of the building like exposed bricks and beams along with new technology and windows that help make the building more energy efficient.

This week, Raven Industry took the remodel to another level, adding a green rooftop to the building's design.

"We filter the rainwater before it gets out into the environment, it acts as an insulator for energy efficiency, and we go a step further on that we're actually harvesting the rainwater into a series of collection tanks that we'll use to irrigate our site," said Hugh Dodson, the Corporate Facility Manager with Raven Industries.

Not only is the design environmentally friendly, it also means the company will save money on their water bill and their over all energy costs every year.
