  • PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
  • Located on the campus of the Georgia Power Corporate Headquarters in Atlanta, the downtown day care facility stands 2-stories tall with a total of 25,000 SF. Steel structure was built with glass and brick skin and both metal sloping and flat built-up roofing. The project features highly efficient mechanical and glass systems, a rainwater recovery system, recycled steel, recycled drywall, rapidly renewable flooring and an HVAC system that operates at an 80% increase in energy efficiency. Open space was maximized and reflective roofing and hardscape were provided. The team maintained a recycling rate above 90% throughout the entirety of the job and, through the efforts of their suppliers, was able to replace virgin materials with recycled ones by 40% of the project costs. The project’s site also allows for more fuel-efficient transportation, as it is convenient to a MARTA train station and encourages parking for car pools, van pools and low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles.

    USGBC has awarded this project LEED Gold certification.
