The Center includes features and offers services that reflect our strong commitment to helping the environment.
Learning in a sustainable setting is not only forward-thinking, but will make an impact with attendees who are concerned about their carbon footprint.
Our facility is 16% more energy-efficient than the national standard, based on ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) estimates*.
The Center’s water conservation efforts are paying off, too. Our water-efficient drip irrigation system and drought-resistant native plants reduce watering requirements by 50 percent.* The Center’s water-efficient fixtures use only 25 to 50 percent of the water consumed by typical bathroom fixtures."
Plus, our pedestrian-friendly setting at the center of Midtown Atlanta’s Technology Square makes it easy for you to walk to restaurants, hotels and entertainment.
Whether you’re here for just a couple of hours or several days, your meetings and trainings will take place in an enjoyable, energy-efficient setting with outstanding indoor air quality, non-toxic paints and a focus on recycling. The Center also is built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. You’ll find a list of some of those features below.
