Modern companies and entrepreneurs understand the value in forward thinking. Not only in searching for an office space that is cheapest, is best located, or blows away the client with all of the money spent, but in the future of the environment. A growing number of business leaders have begun to see the value in putting the effort into securing a green office space in Manhattan.
Green office spaces offer many benefits to the companies who utilize them. Responsible stewardship of the city also comes with financial rewards, and the respect that the “green” designation adds. Consider the following information as you make your choice regarding the best place of business and virtual office for your company.
The Benefits of Green Office Buildings
Green office buildings reduce the environmental impact of doing business while increasing efficiency, employee health, and productivity. Once, many people considered “green” architecture an imposition, or a sacrifice to make in the name of nebulous benefits to the world around us. Today’s greater understanding of what green technology can do for us paints a very different picture.
Environmentally friendly offices provide a wide array of benefits to the companies who take advantage of them. Companies who utilize eco-friendly technology in their green office space discover lower heating and cooling bills, thanks to innovations like green roofs and better building materials. Air quality improves with more attention paid to green building, as does employee health and productivity. Green technologies also often prolong the life of the buildings in which they are installed.
Modern Green Architecture
The words “going green” often bring to mind images of recycling bins, but green architecture has evolved into high-tech solutions for entire structures. Recycled and environmentally friendly building materials have transformed both construction and renovation of office spaces into hidden ways to help the environment. A more visible example of advanced eco-friendly architecture can be seen on the rooftops of several prestigious green office buildings.
Green roofs provide tangible benefits to the businesses who work beneath them. On a green roof, grass and plants grow, creating an insulating layer against both summer and winter temperatures. Stormwater management improves, as does water quality. Growing plant life betters air quality as well.
