Does Green Matter for Commercial Buildings?

October 3, 2011

At STG Design, sustainability is always important in any project. McGraw Hill and CBRE have been researching sustainability for commercial buildings and what it means for tenants. Do people care if their building is LEED Gold or has rain barrels or indoor air quality? Capstar Plaza a LEED Gold project has low-flow fixtures and water-efficient landscaping that resulted in a water-use reduction of 40%. In today’s drought conditions that means alot in water conservation.

The answer might surprise you how much green does matter. For more about the results, check out the article here: http://www.cbre.com/USA/Sustainability/speakingofgreen
