June is a month of new beginnings and continued success for our clients. A triumvirate of great stories highlights this month’s edition of flaSH [PDF]. Enjoy the benefits of being green and sustaining our communities through medicine and historic renovations.
Granite School District Taylorsville Elementary School
SHARCHITECTURE and Onyx Construction have commenced the renovation of historic Taylorsville Elementary School in West Valley, Utah. This renovation to the 50 year old school will create a better learning environment for the students. SHARCHITECTURE applauds Granite School District’s commitment to established schools. “Preservation-based community development not only protects our heritage, but also …increases civic participation, and bolsters a community’s sense of place,” according to the Trust for Historic Preservation
Reaping the Financial Benefits of Going Green
SHARCHITECTURE has helped our clients obtain over $3,000,000 in tax rebates and cash rebates in the first half of 2010. Working with clients to identify financially viable programs to maximize the payback of going green is part of our ongoing analysis of building and system design and life cycle assessment for projects. Existing buildings have some of the same opportunities as well, and can be retrofitted and upgraded with positive financial returns. Contact Eric M Roberts for more info.
