McCoy's Building Supply had green features in mind for its new headquarters, which the San Marcos, Texas-based dealer moved into on July 13.

The new facility features energy-efficient insulated glass exterior windows that are tinted with LowE coatings, providing natural light to approximately 75% of the building's occupied space. The 10th-largest U.S. dealer also installed solar shades on the exterior windows, blocking 99.5% of UV rays. The shades still allow natural light, contributing to energy-efficient cooling, the company said.

An arborist was on staff during the construction of the three-story, 73,550-square-foot facility sitting on 14.68 acres of land. Located about three-tenths of a mile from its former headquarters in San Marcos, the structure replaces McCoy's previous 48,000 square-foot facility. McCoy's broke ground on the site on July 27, 2007.

Interior features include the use of low-VOC paints and coatings and U.S.-manufactured modular furniture systems produced with 44% total recycled content and 95% recyclable content. Light sensors and energy efficient T8 bulbs were installed at workstations to minimize energy use.

Additionally, the 83-unit dealer, with locations in Arkansas, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, had custom tables produced utilizing pecan and walnut stock indigenous to the area.

McCoy's employs about 2,000 people and ranked No. 10 on the 2008 ProSales 100 with total sales of $607 million.
