A 20 kWh solar array on Suzuki School’s roof powers the equivalent of 8 classrooms.
Over 99% of the original 1926 hardwoods in the base building were re-used, saving the CO2 emissions equivalent of 6 tanker trucks of gasoline.
Zipcars, EV charging stations, a tenant shuttle to MARTA, space for over 500 bikes, bike valet and a direct connection to the BeltLine make PCM one of the most accessible buildings in Atlanta by alternative forms of transportation.
A green roof filters rainwater and, along with light colored granite pavers, combat Altanta’s heat island effect.
PCM teamed up with City of Atlanta and Georgia Power to install the first LED street lights on a city street along Glen Iris Drive.
High efficiency bathroom fixtures save 6.5 million gallons of water a year, the equivalent of 10 Olympic sized swimming pools.
PCM’s adaptation of the building generated over 50,000 tons of waste, of which over 98% was recycled. That is the equivalent of 4.2 Eiffel towers, 187 Statues of Liberty, or 3,363 school buses.
Water from a spring underneath the building is used to supply make-up water to the air conditioning systems, reducing PCM’s demand on the municipal system.
