Family Services of Forsyth County
Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Designer: Troxell Gibbons Architecture, Inc.
Family Services of Winston-Salem chose Frank L. Blum Construction Company to build its 20,000-square-foot "green" headquarters, the first ever LEED®-certified new building project in Forsyth County.
The biggest challenge was planning a beautiful, functional building within some very tight budget constraints. The non-profit's board members benefitted from using Blum Construction's MAP Preconstruction Planning Process to guide the decisions that impacted the ultimate cost to build.
Using LEED® guidelines, careful planning, and coordination with all vendors guaranteed a construction process that didn't waste energy or materials and a finished building that is a healthy, productive environment for staff and clients. This project demonstrated that "green" building techniques reinforce the high quality building practices that Blum is known for throughout the Triad.
