Spring Plantings at CBRE-One Beacon!

Cityscapes installed Spring plantings at CBRE-One Beacon earlier this month in Boston, Massachusetts.  One Beacon is a platinum level LEED certified building.  LEED stands for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design and it is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.  Our eye catching display at CBRE included Bellis, Pansies, Forsythia and Lamium.  Happy Spring!

Genzyme Center Gardens

Genzyme Center’s LEED Platinum Certification is the highest level available.  This ‘green’ building employs countless techniques to maximize energy efficiency.  From computer-controlled window blinds maximizing natural light and controlling radiant heat gain, to green roofs reducing the urban location’s ‘heat island’ effect, this building is a living organism.

Live plant gardens on every floor provide not only a peaceful area to work or take a break, but also improve the relative humidity levels of the space.  These gardens also supplement the building’s air cleaning systems by purifying the air, lowering CO2 levels, and decreasing the amount of ambient volatile organic compounds.

Genzyme runs public tours for those who want to experience the nature of this dynamic building and it’s gardens that are maintained by, that’s right, Cityscapes.

To help bring your space to life, call Cityscapes today.
