Parksmart Recognizes Atlas10 Project for Innovation and Sustainability
CINCINNATI, OH The Parksmart program, administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), recently recognized the new green surface parking lot at Procter & Gamble's Mason Business Center as a demonstrator site.
The site is one of only six in the world recognized by Parksmart for identifying and implementing best practices in sustainable surface parking design and operation and is one example of how P&G is building sustainability into its facilities and operations.
Atlas10, a Cincinnati, Ohio, -based company, assessed the pavement conditions, procured resources, and project managed the sustainable surface parking site to conserve energy and construction materials and to reduce operating costs. Its environmentally friendly design also acknowledges parking's important role as a transformative force for the sustainability of a community.
"When designed with sustainability in mind, surface parking can help reduce energy consumption, improve air and water quality and safely connect neighborhoods and people," said Paul Wessel, Director of Market Transformation and Development for Parksmart. "Atlas10's forward thinking approach to surface parking can help increase the value of surface parking sites and help property owners work toward sustainability goals."
The project was recognized during a presentation at Procter & Gamble's Mason Business Center that also featured partners Jones Lang LaSalle, Neyra, SurfaceTech and 10 Mile Creek.
"Sustainable surface parking benefits the community, environment and property owners," said Mark Schmidt, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas10. "It's an honor to work with Procter & Gamble and the other construction partners to make sustainable parking a reality, and we are pleased that the project we orchestrated is now a demonstrator site."
