AMSURG was featured in greenSTUDIO’s fall email newsletter highlighting how our new corporate office is designed for active employees.
AMSURG Corp. Headquarters Designed for Active Occupants | LEED GOLD, 2015
“Employee health and wellness were reoccurring themes during a sustainability charrette facilitated by greenSTUDIO for the AMSURG Corp. office space in Nashville, TN. To allow for unencumbered end-user responses and to inform design team concepts, an anonymous survey was distributed documenting anticipated utilization of sustainable features such as covered and secure bicycle storage (25%), task lighting at workstations (70%), and access to exercise equipment (88%).
With the incorporation of a highly visible and convenient stair that encourages walking, an on-site fitness area, and a secure bicycle storage room in the private parking structure, it seemed fitting for greenSTUDIO to introduce an Innovation credit called “Design for Active Occupants.” In the project’s pursuit of LEED for Commercial Interiors certification, greenSTUDIO developed a certification path that matched AMSURG’s corporate culture and values with LEED strategies focused on health, wellness and long term benefit. Successful sustainable design rewards behavioral change in subtle and convenient ways, promoting health and wellness, and keeping employees happy!”
