Orlando Office Hosts Sustainability Group

Press release 10/19/2009 6:00 PM EST

It didn’t take long for our Orlando office to become a showpiece for sustainability. The first facility in Orlando certified LEED® Gold for Commercial Interiors, the office has become a destination for groups looking to see how sustainability can work for them.

Recently, the office hosted the Sunshine Chapter of The Hospitality Industry Network (NEWH), specifically its group supporting sustainable hospitality.“It was a great opportunity to showcase not only our office, but to give the group some idea of our expertise when it comes to LEED building,” says Senior Business Developer Robin Freiberger, who helped organize the event. “The group approached Skanska and we were happy to give them a tour and allow them to use our conference room for a meeting afterward.”NEWH provided positive feedback on the success of the event, as well.“We’re glad they were able to get what they came for,” Robin says, “and programs like this are a wonderful way to help build word-of-mouth about Skanska in the Orlando business community.”
