Skanska built out 41,000 square feet of office space at 55 Allen Plaza in downtown Atlanta, where it moved in 2007.

The main environmental goal of Skanska’s new office space is to reduce its carbon dioxide footprint by electrical efficiency, water conservation and HVAC efficiency. Using Energy Star equipment, lighting controls, sensors and lighting, the office achieves a 26 percent reduction in energy consumption when compared to standard equipment.

Waterless restroom urinals account for a 30 percent reduction in water use, while the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system is 17 percent more efficient than regular units.

Skanska’s office in Atlanta was designed so natural light flows through glass walls. Office lights are turned off automatically when the outdoor light is efficient enough for working. The company also selected and installed materials with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that reduce unhealthy emissions from paint and carpet.

Another important aspect of the new office space is its prime location, which has easy access to MARTA, Atlanta’s rapid transit system.

Skanska provides free, monthly passes to further encourage the use of public transportation.
