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.
