Green Buildings + What Makes A Sustainable Workplace

Many wonder how contractors can do more to produce a green working environment or sustainable building that goes above and beyond LEED certification. Here is what Boly:Welch client SERA Architects does with such a challenge:

A person could look at the plans for the building in this article and say “You know, they really know how to ‘do sustainability’.” Parallel to outward images, Stacey Mark, who is partner at Ater Wynne LLP, says the proof is in the pudding:

As an example, SERA has been a long time sustainable business, with in-house practices to match their planned trellises for others. Their very low turnover rate is positive proof of their goal of maintaining in-house jobs, and a further commitment to total sustainability. That’s the way we like it here at Boly:Welch and we love seeing our clients in the forefront!
