Green Building Tour On Tap for St. Patty’s

In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the U.S. Green Building Council and the Sierra Club are hosting a free open house and tour of Memphis’ first and only LEED-certified office building, Triad Centre III.

Highwoods Properties Inc.’s seven-story, 150,000-square-foot office building was built on an existing parking lot with a new three-level garage in the Poplar Corridor.

The public is invited to stop by and get an inside look at the features and benefits of operating and working in a green building, including:

  • Cost effective Energy Savings
  • White Roof
  • Proximity to bike lanes, bike storage & showers
  • Walkable access to lunch, shopping and public transit
  • Energy Management System
  • Green Cleaning
  • High Efficiency Lighting
  • Water Conservation
  • Monitored Ventilation

Officials say the tour is one of dozens around the country aimed at making green building a key component of economic and environmental sustainability. It runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and includes refreshments.
