Sustainability

Green Roof

Check out Suntrust Center's green roof! Our green roof helps us reduce the local heat island effect, insulates the floor directly beneath it, and reduces stress on our stormwater systems during rain events due to infiltration.  Plus, it provides a nicer view than a regular roof.

As a leader in sustainability in the commercial real estate industry, Parmenter constantly strives to optimize building performance across our portfolio. We operate buildings that provide healthy environments for our tenants and visitors while at the same time reducing the impact our buildings have on energy consumption, water use and waste generated, throughout our ownership and beyond.

Parmenter implements sustainable management policies, energy retrofits, and tenant engagement events; and empowers our engineers to operate high performance buildings.

We utilize EPA’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager to manage energy and water consumption at our buildings. We also participate in national building competitions designed to encourage energy reduction and certification programs to highlight our commitment to sustainability.
