Nestled in foodie-favorite West Midtown and adjacent to the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology, Integral Consulting Engineering recently found a home in Brickworks, an adaptive reuse development of an early-1880s furniture warehouse. Our loft-style office’s theme focuses on material sustainability and incorporates salvaged materials (doors, tile) from the Lifecycle Building Center of Greater Atlanta, carpet tile from Interface manufactured using salvaged fishing nets, and furniture fabricated using re-purposed materials.
