With attention paid to green building operations, older building inefficiencies can be turned around much sooner than new builds. 

And every choice adds up! Here are a few of the choices we made to lessen our environmental impact and support a green building and operations. Not only do these updates support better health and well-being, but they also lead to cost-savings. Now that's a win-win!

Efficient Cooling

Updated 36-year-old AC units to a 96% efficient model.

Carpet

No Carpet to Waste

Updated carpet with premium hotel overflow that may have other wise been discarded. Square tiles are used in high traffic area to reduce the need for replacement carpet. In addition, new carpet toxins have been allowed to ‘breath’ out, creating a safer product.

Recycling Bottles

Recycle Made Easy

We encourage recycling by placing recycle bins in every room and near every desk. We also provide old technology recycling drop-off disposal.

Happy & Green

Created a vertical garden on the building’s exterior wall to absorb energy and encourage a sense of well-being to passers-by. As we add to the garden, energy savings should increase.

Service Sharing 

Sharing technology and resources as a service allows for less resource use (and waste) overall.
