Project Spotlight: DCT
River West Distribution Center

The 733k square-foot, speculative distribution warehouse is located just outside of Atlanta in Lithia Springs, Georgia. DCT Industrial purchased and developed the property with plans to pursue LEED Core + Shell Certified level certification. However, through significant energy-efficient features, usage of recycled content, regional, and low-emitting building materials, and with a full-team commitment from the beginning phases of the project to the end, LEED Core + Shell Silver certification was achieved on October 12th, 2015.

SIG, Easter Seals of North Georgia, and Recycling

SIG’s latest philanthropy project was held on October 26th—SIG team members volunteered at Easter Seals of North Georgia. We taught the children about recycling, helped to set up a recycling program for the building, and even helped optimize their energy consumption via tweaking the thermostat settings and adjusting dampers. We all enjoyed going back again and getting to interact with the children in their classrooms.

ENERGY STAR
Spotlight:
Landmark Center

Our client Samuels & Associates owns this historic, art deco building that was built in 1929 for Sears, Roebuck and Company. It was approved for ENERGY STAR this week with a score of 83.
This multi-use building has several office floors and large retail tenants on the first floor including BEST BUY.

Fun Facts: the building has over a million SF and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Sears, Roebuck and Company Mail-Order Warehouse and Retail store.
