SKANEATELES, N.Y. – “Medical manufacturer Welch Allyn has completed its global headquarters

 

expansion and renovation project. The company unveiled the new LEED Gold certified building

 

headquarters on State Street Road in Skaneateles on Monday. The $35 million project took

 

nearly four years to complete.

 

The LEED certification is awarded to buildings that are environmentally responsible. The new

 

headquarters gets 35 percent of its energy from renewable resources and reduces water usage

 

by 25 percent.

 

CEO Julie Shimer says project was about much more than helping out Mother Nature.

 

“It’s not just the environmental, but it includes the environment. It is a company that cares

 

about its employees, about its customers and about its community and I’m proud to be a part of

 

it,” Shimer said.

 

Eighty percent of the projects construction debris was recycled and 20 percent of building
