Allow GBA to share its LEED-CI Platinum space with you!
Come check out the many green features in GBA’s own LEED Platinum office! You already know that we believe healthy, high-performing spaces make a difference for occupants, but if you don’t want simply to take our word for it, this is your chance to find out for yourself. Hear our staff lay out what they love about working in a LEED-certified office, and see what makes GBA’s office a green space! Here are a few of our favorite features:
*A countertop made from salvaged bowling alley material
*Drywall made from coal byproduct
*Carbon-offsetting carpet squares
*A hospital-grade ventilation system
Come to see these green features and so many more! For additional information, take a look at our green building directory listing for a sneak peek of what the tour will include.
