Tandus: LEED Silver Certified Design Center opens in Atlanta

We love talking about ourselves and the benefits of Tryk sampling. We also love to recognize achievements by our clients and friends in the interiors industry.

Tandus’ newly opened showroom and design center in Atlanta’s Westside has achieved LEEDs Silver certification. The building, constructed in 1904 by the Atlanta Railway Company for use as a trolley barn received a major renovation while keeping most of the original structure intact.

The interior combines a flexible product display area with comfortable, productive work spaces that can be easily configured for industry events or training.

According to Tandus, the LEED Green Building System Silver Certification was awarded based on the design center’s energy use, lighting, water and materials use as well as other sustainable strategies. Some of those strategies include access to public transportation, using locally manufactured materials, diverting 75 percent of construction waste from landfill and using Tandus carpet products with recycled content and low VOC.

Tandus was also recognized last month by The Georgia Chapter of the Air and Waste Management Association with its 2008 Company Environmental Award for its efforts in waste reduction.

This month Tandus will reveal a new design and updated content for its innovative Blink studio. New Tryk product formats, like the Tryk Split and Tryk Mod, combined with improved online features make it an even more powerful tool for speeding the design process and eliminating unnecessary waste.

Our blog is mostly about sustainable design in the interiors industry,
especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
