The building, located at 505 Eagleview Blvd in Exton’s Eagleview Corporate Center, was designed to qualify for “silver certification” under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Peter Chin, XL’s Head of Corporate Administrative Services, which oversees XL’s facilities worldwide, said: “For XL, the new building project is the first of its kind for us employing this level of “green” or sustainable design principles and will be the first of our offices to seek LEED certification.”
“By working with successful, environmentally conscious companies, like XL, we are able to create great new workplaces while minimizing environmental impacts. We are happy to partner with XL on this important project and welcome their commitment to our Eagleview community,” said Robert Hankin, CEO of The Hankin Group.
LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. Silver certification is the 3rd highest LEED building certification for commercial buildings.
The new Exton office currently provides workspace for 400 XL Insurance employees. Upon completion of the 3rd floor interior, another 100 XL Insurance employees will join their colleagues representing various business units which provide specialized insurance coverages to businesses worldwide. Major product groups include Environmental, Design Professional, Excess & Surplus, and Programs.
Rich Corbett, who heads XL Insurance’s Global Environmental Insurance division based in Exton said: “We help our clients manage the environmental risks that their operations may pose to the environment and public health and within our local community. We also support a number of environmental programs and projects. The commitment to green design in our new workspace has taken XL Insurance’s environmental stewardship to a whole new level.”
