Sustainable Designs

Sustainability is an integral part of project development. A project-specific, multi-disciplinary strategy incorporating green design (LEED, GREEN GLOBE, etc.) is tailored to our clients’ operational and philosophical needs and directives. Sustainability, durability and life-cycle cost are factored into each design, avoiding burdens on operations staff and annual budgets. Philosophically, TAG aligns itself with programs that are less costly to administer, practical, and focused on results as opposed to process.

The $138-million Johns Creek Environmental Campus, the largest membrane bioreactor plant in the U.S., treats up to 15 million gallons per day of wastewater. But what sets the plant apart, besides its amenities is, the design, giving it the look of a traditional mill. The site includes a shared-use public park and trail system as well as an educational facility aimed at teaching children about the impact of water quality on the environment.
