Located in Atlanta’s historic Martin Luther King, Jr. District, the building was originally constructed in the 1940s, and was most recently occupied by an industrial manufacturing company. The 2010 renovation centered on sustainable building techniques and energy efficiency. A new stair tower with clerestory windows was installed to provide both natural light and a grand entrance to the second floor. Efficient light fixtures, low-flow restroom fixtures, and a five kilowatt photovoltaic array contribute to energy savings. The use of reclaimed wood and local materials, the addition of a green roof, and the installation of daylight harvesting sensors added to the project’s sustainable goals. Managed by the building’s occupants, who are experts and consultants in energy efficient and sustainable buildings, the renovation project has earned LEED Platinum and four Green Globes.
