StoPowerwall Stucco Systems was used for the Southface Energy Institute’s Eco Office in Atlanta. The Southface Eco Office has a LEED Platinum-level rating for New Construction from the U.S. Green Building Council.
“The Southface Eco Office is the result of a unique
collaboration among Southface, the owner; Lord, Aeck & Sargent, the
architect; Eco Office Contractors: A Green Building Consortium (of five
builders); and others who have donated their services and dollars, as well as
off-the shelf green building products and technologies, like Sto’s, that will
be used in the Eco Office,” said Dennis Creech, executive director of
Southface, a non-profit organization that promotes sustainable homes,
workplaces and communities.
The three-story structure, approximately 10,000 square feet,
serves as a model of environmentally responsible commercial construction and
demonstrates that green commercial building creates a healthy and productive
workplace with reduced operating costs. The Eco Office displays innovative
ideas for saving energy and water, reducing waste, re-using and recycling
materials, and maintaining a healthy indoor environment.
The building is home to a two-story classroom, two private
offices and workstations for the staff.
The Eco Office uses StoPowerwall (over Insulated Concrete
Forms) and Sto Powerflex Silco.
