Triad Center III
This seven-story, 148,000 SF, Class-A office building was the first office building in the Memphis area to successfully pursue and achieve USGBC’s LEED Gold Certification in 2009. Although The Crump Firm, Inc. has designed several projects to meet LEED standards, this was the first project submitted to the USGBC for certification.
One of the many challenging aspects of this project is the fact that Triad Centre III was designed to match the two existing structures, while incorporating the new sustainable design objectives of the LEED rating system.
Some of the key “green” features of Triad Centre III include low-E tinted exterior glass, low VOC materials for increased indoor air quality, highly reflective materials on-site & on-roof to reduce heat island effect, and bike racks and shower facilities to promote alternative transportation. Other energy saving features include high-efficiency lighting, water-saving fixtures, energy management system, high-efficiency HVAC system, occupancy lighting sensors and a high level of regional material use.
