  • Atlanta, GA (1888PressRelease) October 18, 2010 - Hardin Construction Company is a joint venture partner with Chap Ashmore & Associates (CAA) in building Galleria Manor of Smyrna, a four-story, 88-unit apartment complex for seniors, in Smyrna, Georgia-a project of The Paces Foundation.

    A September 17th groundbreaking will launch the project, which will be built to LEED Silver certification standards. The architect of record is Martin Riley Associates of Decatur, Georgia. Construction is scheduled to complete in the summer of 2011.
    Galleria Manor marks the 11th project CAA/Hardin has built for The Paces Foundation, a not-for-profit, community housing development corporation.

    Galleria Manor would also become the foundation's second LEED-certified senior housing development. Whitehall Manor in Cleveland, Georgia, was recently awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. It was the first affordable, senior housing facility in Georgia to be awarded LEED Gold.

    Meeting Two Objectives
    LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. USGBC LEED certification levels are Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

    "We're looking forward to commencing construction," said Hardin Chairman Brantley Barrow. "It's rewarding being part of a team that is both addressing the growing need for affordable, senior housing as well as promoting sustainable design and construction throughout the community."

    Hardin Construction is known for its expertise in green building and for achieving LEED certifications for its clients.
