You Can Green Anything
You can green an office. You can even green eggs (and ham). So why not self-storage? It can be just as sustainable as office, industrial, or retail projects, William Warren Group CEO Bill Hobin tells us. The company, which operates under StorQuest brand of self-storage properties, has been updating its facilities to include exterior lighting operated by photoelectric sensors, LED-lit signage, and updating landscaping with low-water plants. Old roofs are being retrofitted with “white” low-energy, low-heat roof applications and coatings. Recently the SoCal-based self-storage specialist bought six Colorado self-storage properties, nearly 2,700 units, for $33M; these will be rebranded as StorQuest and upgraded with green features.
