Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
GSky Plant Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that a major auto finance company in the Atlanta area has installed a massive 1008 sq. foot Versa Green Wall in the building's cafeteria. The auto company’s new building design, led by global architecture firm Gensler, is sleek, modern and classic in its design. The new living Green Wall suits this modern design aesthetic and is a central design element of the cafeteria. The nature-inspired beauty of the wall helps create a calming and peaceful environment for employees who need a moment to relax in the midst of a busy workday.
This is GSky’s second installation in this auto company's regional office. The previous work can be seen in the Plano office location, where GSky first introduced the Versa Wall System to the market. The custom Green Wall holds 5,116 plants (including eight types of plants species) on a single wall, where it not only has brought life to the building but also accessibility to nature in the indoors. The design follows closely to the previous Green Wall with a flowing pattern that creates a natural movement, drawing your eyes from one side to the next.
The Green Wall is a natural air filtering system that clears out the dust and toxins in the air, thereby increasing energy-rich oxygen and reducing CO2. According to GSky, 50 sq. feet of their custom Green Walls consume approximately the same amount of CO2 as a 12-ft. high tree per year!
Chad Sichello, President of GSky, says that implementing a living Green Wall into the workplace environment can be immensely beneficial for employees. “Integrating green elements into the workplace is essential to employees' well-being,” Sichello says. “Frequent exposure to greenery can help employees feel calmer and less stressed due to less noise and less heat from Green Walls. Just imagine spending 8 hours of your day, every work day, working in a park shaded by tall trees, surrounded by beautiful plants that are providing you with fresh, clean air to rejuvenate you with every breath. A GSky Versa Wall reduces your stress and increases your productivity, which results in increased satisfaction with our jobs and makes us happier people.”
GSky’s Versa Wall System is user-friendly and easy to install and maintain for any interior Green Wall. It employs 4-inch industry standard pots that can be placed directly into the Versa Wall tray to ensure instant plant coverage, offering flexible installation options and a variety of plant selections. The Versa Wall is eco-friendly, customizable, durable and economical. Additionally, it has a recirculating irrigation system that is 100% water efficient and self-contained.
“This GSky Versa Green Wall will continue to provide employees not only a talking piece, but an oasis of natural beauty, relaxation and cleaner air,” Sichello says. “A Versa Wall is more than just a beautiful piece of living art; it's a cornerstone in the future of our mental health, physical wellness and happiness. And the fact that this prominent auto company is installing Versa Walls in more offices, and installing bigger ones, is a testament to these benefits.”
