Our office parks have always been "greener"
Decades before it was fashionable, we were already following environmentally friendly practices. Today, we think it's more important than ever to do what we can to help our community and make a difference.
Of course, we also understand that a "greener" office uses less energy, creates less waste, is healthier for your staff and visitors, and requires fewer natural resources compared to common office space.
If you're looking for "green" office space, here's what you'll find with North Forest:
92% energy efficient furnaces with a setback thermostat
- North Forest custom warm heating design that provides heating at about $.30/SF (about 1/3 the cost of other standard commercial office space).
Fully insulated exterior and interior with R-19 in all exterior walls, R-38 in ceiling
More than 1,000 trees planted across all our parks over the past 10 years
Recycled blacktop and concrete base for all our parking lots
Storm water filtered by draining the parking lot runoff through grass areas before the water enters the storm sewer (we were doing this in all parks before it became a federal requirement for developers)
