When one thinks of auto body shops, lush green foliage may not be the first image that comes to mind. After a visit to the new eco-friendly Selecta Auto Body you will change your mind. The use of over 300 six-inch Pothos and 44 Living Wall planter trays solidified Selecta Auto Body Shop in obtaining certification in B Corporation, partners in Carbonfund.org and membership in US Green Building Council.
Having plants in their shop was so important to the Selecta team, they earmarked a budget from the very beginning of the process for the design, installation, and upkeep of the plants. Not only will the plants delight customers aesthetically, but they will reduce noise levels inside the facility. Mounted on a big concrete wall, the plants will act as a sound buffer in an environment that can be quite noisy.
The inclusion of creating a visually enhancing presentation and supporting the eco-friendly needs required in the concept stage allowed for the designer to by far exceed the simple needs. Selecta Auto Body currently has a five-star customer satisfaction rating on Yelp and is the preferred auto body for car insurance companies such as State Farm Insurance.
