ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) -


A 45-minute VIP ceremony to celebrate the long-awaited completion of the Southface Eco Office - a unique office, demonstration and training facility, and one of the greenest commercial buildings in the world. The innovative Eco Office includes these notable features:

  -- A 10,100 square foot area similar to the majority of office buildings
     in the U.S.

  -- A fourth floor "green roof" with solar array supplying roughly 10% of
     its energy.

  -- The ability to operate on half the energy of a conventional office
     building, and 84% less water.

  -- A design that serves as a global model for office construction,
     following Southface's mission of promoting sustainable homes,
     workplaces and communities through education and technical assistance.
