Thalhimer's Project & Development Services Announces Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) Earns LEED Gold Certification

SELC’s 27,000 SF Headquarters, located in Virginia’s tallest mass timber frame structure, in Charlottesville, VA was awarded LEED Gold certification in August 2022. With a mission to protect the basic right to clean air, clean water, and a livable climate, SELC is pleased to have their office environment reflect these values.  SELC’s HQ buildout was substantially complete in March 2022. The interior design selectively exposes the building’s primary structural elements including mass timber columns and ceilings to reduce the cost, maintenance and environmental impact of adding secondary finish materials.
