Suzanne Turner Associates

Turner Industries

Turner Industries constructed two new office buildings beginning in 2008 – one adjacent to an industrial facility; both located along interstate highways leading to and from Baton Rouge. Using native trees, grasses, and other low-maintenance perennial plantings, STA sought to create beautiful and comfortable spaces for office workers and visitors, but also to provide a memorable experience for those viewing these landscapes while passing by in their daily commutes. Special attention was paid to sustainable principles consisting of low water usage plantings, permeable paving, and groundwater recharge zones – saving money for the client and concurrently providing environmental remediation.
