Green Office Space

The current climate for commercial office space now emphasizes a smarter more efficient approach in both materials and costs. With resources worldwide at a premium and costs rising in both materials and energy, it may be time to start thinking Green. Our goal in Green thinking is to provide you the tenant with a viable option towards environmentally friendly commercial space.
Why go Green?
Running an environmentally responsible business is not just a statement of personal values. It’s great for the bottom line. Excessive use of commodities like paper and energy, places a strain on both the environment and your budget.

What does it mean to be Green?

LEED Certified Buildings
In 2000, the U.S. Green Building Council established the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification system. In order to be LEED certified, buildings must meet specific standards for water savings, energy efficiency, materials, and indoor environmental quality. The platinum LEED rating has been awarded to buildings which have reduced their energy dependence by use of green principles; two examples include access to mass transit and use of recycled materials in construction. In the United States, only 41% of office buildings are LEED certified at the platinum level.

Features of Green Office Space:
Natural light. The use of plenty of well-positioned windows is a hallmark of a green building. The more natural light gets in, the less energy you will use on lighting.

Efficient windows. Why spend money and energy heating or cooling the outside of your building? A green office has high quality windows that properly seal off the interior environment.

Recycled building materials. Green real estate often features recycled fly ash concrete construction and may include re-used wood and other recycled materials.

Energy-saving appliances and plumbing. Efficient heating and cooling systems, power-saving light fixtures and low-flow plumbing can drastically reduce your company’s consumption of water and energy.

Alternative energy sources. Solar panels are most common, but some green offices feature unique eco-friendly amenities like geo-thermal heating.

These are just a few of the many new green building techniques becoming more common. Green offices may employ some or all of these features, plus many other new eco-friendly add-ons.
