MEET OUR SPONSOR: PERKINS + WILL
Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major Atlanta players at one of our upcoming events!
|Architecture firm Perkins+Will moved into its new 1315 Peachtree Street digs a couple weeks ago, and to show its commitment to sustainability, partner Paula Vaughan took us to the roof to model the firm's new adsorption chiller, which cools the building without using conventional ozone-eating refrigerants, and two microturbines(a sort of mini powerplant that converts natural gas into electricity). Green is nothing new to the firm, says Paula. ?It's one of the main sectors that has kept us going very strongly in the Atlanta market through this downturn.? As a panelist at tomorrow?s Sustainability Summit (sign up now!), Paula will offer much more insight into investing in sustainability, as well as how P+W has walked the walk: ?What do you do when it's your building and your money? How do you make those decisions that you expect your clients to make?"|
