Melink Corporation helps global companies manage their energy efficiency and
renewable energy. KZF provided architecture and interior design for the new, $5M expansion of the Melink headquarters in Milford, OH. The 30,000 SF building mimics the original Melink headquarters building with updates to design elements, colors, features and technologies. The build includes office space, manufacturing/assembly space and meeting rooms.

The new facility is a model in energy efficiency, achieving “net zero energy,” meaning the building produces as much or more energy than it consumes. The building features geothermal HVAC and a solar photovoltaic canopy to generate electricity.

The building is envelope was improved to control the interior climate and has
lighting and shade control systems that maximize natural light while preventing the sun’s light from heating the building, as well as a HVAC system that only speeds up fans to circulate air when the building is more full of people producing CO2. It also features the latest technology in terms of window and door systems.
