Metroflor, a luxury vinyl flooring company, wants to tear down its offices in Norwalk and build an “innovation campus” that will be among the most environmentally friendly structures in the U.S. According to plans submitted to the Norwalk Planning and Zoning Commission, the new building would have 24,000 square feet of office and research space, as well as living space for Metroflor’s visiting artists. The company plans to earn the “Living Building Challenge” certification from the International Living Institute, which carries stricter renewable standards than the LEED Platinum label. [The Hour]
