The Pinnacle at Symphony Place - Do Green Buildings Make Life Greener?

January 4, 2010

Keith Simmons, managing partner at Bass, Berry & Sims, and Kimberly Alexander, a legal assistant in the firm's corporate department, are interviewed by Anne Paine of The Tennessean in an article considering the impact of working in a "green," LEED certified building and whether it will help employees live greener, healthier lives at home. The article appears in the January 3 edition of The Tennessean. Bass, Berry & Sims recently moved their Nashville offices to the LEED certified Pinnacle at Symphony Place building.

From the story:

Kimberly Alexander, a legal assistant in the firm's corporate division, said the building's proximity to walking and bike paths, the profuse natural lighting and its plants and water-saving features are inspiring her, health-wise, and in a home remodeling project.

"We're trying to pay attention now to recycling water and plantings," she said. "We're looking at hypoallergenic materials we can use in our home."

Bass Berry & Sims leaders found their plans for the firm grew greener as they considered the innovative new building for which they had approved the developer, Barry Real Estate, and the lead architect, Pickard Chilton.

"What it's meant is we've tried to be more environmentally conscious within the firm," said Keith Simmons, managing partner.
