Puget Sound Business Journal discusses “Office Suites Providers adding Value by Going Green”

On page 7 of the May 23-29, 2008 edition of the Puget Sound Business Journal, Thinkspace is highlighted as a new Eastside executive office suite.

The PSBJ commercial real estate reporter Jeanne Lang Jones tells the story of Thinkspace how we are seeking LEED silver certification, how we used HEPA filters to control dust during demolition and how we recycled 97.7% of our demolition debris.  She also mentions that we have energy efficient lighting and our goal of reducing our energy costs by about 30%.  She also states “Besides using nontoxic (low or no VOC) paints, recycled carpet and energy efficient lighting, Chee is also providing tenants with bike racks, a shower and changing room and a charging station for electric cars.”

I’m being quoted saying “It’s better space at the same price our competition charges.”  In the article, a tenant of Thinkspace is quoted, “It’s the nicest Class A space in downtown Redmond…An office with sustainable features like this is just not available to small businesses…For entrepreneurs, it is an affordable way to limit their carbon footprint.”

    Hi Peter.

    How much do your current clients appreciate the good work you are doing from a green perspective?

    Is it something they actively ask you to continue or are they just happy that you are doing it on their behalf?

    Hi James, my current clients do appreciate the green aspects. They are really into the recycling of paper, plastic, composting, and alkaline battery recycling.

    People tell me that what we’re doing at thinkspace is right in-line with their business mission and that it resonates with them.

    Others are happy that they this is place that allows them to be green without trying!
