We are pleased to announce that Raleigh Pediatric Associate’s Garner Location was recently awarded LEED Certification. The facility incorporates daylighting, local and recycled materials, and sustainable practices into its design.
Natural light fills the patron areas, doctor and nurse stations, and interior corridors while daylight monitors and sunscreens reduce the demand for manufactured energy. A large amount of rock found during early construction was crushed on site and reused as fill material in the process.
The lighting, views, bold colors, shapes, and patterns all make for a fun and enjoyable experience for young patients and their families.

There are many law schools in the state of North Carolina, but there is only one that is located in the heart of the state capital. The reactivation of this 20 year old multi-tenant office building has successfully brought new life and activity to the surrounding urban area.
The Law School was one of nine new construction and rehabilitation projects selected to receive a prestigious Imprint Award from the Downtown Raleigh Alliance for significantly contributing to the identity of downtown Raleigh on February 25th.

Originally constructed in 1926, Olds Elementary School was in danger of being razed and replaced. But the community rallied to save a piece of their history and today hundreds of students, teachers and parents walk through the halls of this transformed school. There has been an overwhelming response to the renovation and addition from the community, staff and students, each of whom has expressed tremendous sense of pride in the “New Olds.”
The renovation and addition was featured by the National Trust as an historic school preservation success story. For further project information and to view the article in its entirety, please see the attached article below.
Small Kane is an advocate of sustainable design. This has been especially important in the firm’s education projects, where well-thought out design choices make a positive impact on learning environments, set an example for future generations, and save taxpayers money in land, energy and water costs.
NC Magazine recently interviewed Neal Conley, AIA, a principal and project architect at Small Kane, on how the firm seeks to provide “A Green Education.” The article, posted below, discusses what area firms are doing to promote green technologies in school design, and it features information for the Barwell Road Elementary School and Community Center project designed for Wake County Public Schools and City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation Department.
