Vernon, B.C. (PRWEB) November 13, 2012

GSky Plant Systems, Inc., a leading provider of vertical green walls completed the installation of a Versa Wall for Kal Tires new Vernon Office located in Vernon, B.C. Kal Tire employs more than 5,000 team members, is Canadas largest independent tire dealer with over 240 stores servicing commercial and retail customers, operates on over 150 mines sites in 20 countries, and is entirely Canadian owned. The installation of 254 square feet of green wall composed of ficus and lipstick plants has enhanced Kal Tires new atrium entrance into a welcoming focal point for visitors and team members alike.

David Penner, project manager, design and construction for Kal Tire states, One of the highlights of the new Kal Tire Vernon Office building is the large skylight situated over the atrium which allows for natural sunlight to enter the building. The green wall accents the atrium and together with the light brings a unique energy into the building for our team members.

The new office space has many green features including pine beetle wood interior finishing, large natural windows and skylights, and now an impressive GSky Versa Wall. The Versa Wall uses interior tropical plants that have been selected specifically for their adaptation and ability to thrive, adding a softer side to the space by drawing contrast from the weight of the concrete building structure.

We wanted to keep it soft and personal, thats when the green wall concept was introduced, said Tara Lingle, designer from BOX Interior Design.

GSkys Versa Wall has a recirculating irrigation system that is 100% water efficient and self-contained making the system suitable for any interior wall without the worry of spillage. The Versa Wall is naturally beautiful, eco-friendly, customizable, durable and economical offering flexible installation options and a variety of plant selections.

According to Zaya Younan, Chairman and CEO, “The refinance of Lakeside Square takes advantage of the current favorable rate environment and reflects the market value of this Class “A” asset.

Overall, demand for Class “A” buildings continues to grow in Dallas/Fort Worth with more than 330,000 square feet of positive absorption in the second quarter. The new financing provides us additional resources for leasing and tenant improvement and positions this building as the premier office building in Park Central.”

The company recently announced to tenants that it is initiating a capital program to upgrade the existing building and add new lifestyle amenities. Phase One includes building a new fitness center, renovating the lobby and common areas, a wireless upgrade and an exterior landscape improvement program.

Younan added, “This latest announcement is a further example of our stated goal to realign and de-leverage our overall portfolio to 60%.”

Lakeside Square is one of the premier office buildings in Park Central and benefits from its impressive stature, modern architectural design and tranquil lakeside setting. Its reflective silver glass exterior and white marble lobby create a distinctive modern environment with classical touches.

The New Office Space Is All About Lifestyle

Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 30, 2012

Office space has been undergoing a major cultural revolution ever since post WWII. Directly after WWII, the office space became a reflection of self-worth. Then in the 80s it became a sharing open floorplan of cubicles. By the 90s, the high-tech start-ups pulled down the walls and the office space was wherever you could set down your laptop. We now live in a knowledge economy and lifestyle plays an important role in the office environment.

Small Army, a boutique ad agency, located in Bostons old Horticultural Hall, directly across the street from the Boston Symphony Orchestra tapped into this new trend in a big way. According to Steve Kolander, EVP/Creative Director of Small Army, We consider ourselves storytellers instead of ad guys, and we wanted an office space that felt more honest and less manufactured. In an effort to bring this unique direction to life, Small Army hired a young team of designers called The Makers Co. to make a space that was collaborative, free-thinking, imaginative and self-reflective.

Senior art director, Christian Williams of Small Army happened to be one of the Makers, and so with an intimate knowledge of its personality, Christian and his team began to sketch out ideas for the new space.

Leveraging the 30 ceilings, the initial concept began with dreams of a tree house. But, costs and a rapidly approaching move date quickly turned that plan into a phase 2 initiative.

Perhaps one of the more interesting and unique experiences about entering the Small Army workspace is the absence of a receptionist. Instead, graphics and unique architectural details serve as a guide into the space. The walkway is like falling through a rabbit hole into a storytelling factory. You pass through an editing bay room, and two phone rooms until you find yourself in a large living room with couches, chairs and 15-foot high windows with massive amounts of sunlight pouring in. Above the conference rooms sliding barnyard doors reads the moral to the Small Army story: The strongest relationships are built on shared beliefs. This is the centerpiece and rallying cry of every Small Army employee. According to Williams, The idea of working at a desk all day is antiquated thinking. Our goal was to create a variety of non-traditional spaces where people could break free of their desks and work in a setting that is most efficient to them.

As a result, The Makers created a caf
