Calling all SEGD Atlanta members... Here's your chance to volunteer and give back, while networking with likeminded design professionals from IIDA!

In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill.

So we asked why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.

ZeroLandfill is a program of BeeDance. For a fifth year, IIDA Georgia (International Interior Design Association of Georgia) has partnered with Wilsonart to bring the ZeroLandfill event to Atlanta. To date, we have helped upcycle more than 156,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples. Help us beat our previous year totals by participating in the 2017 ZeroLandfill Atlanta event!

Drop off the materials at our new event venue Certified Finishes on one of our drop off days, Friday, August 4th and Friday, August 11th from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

Contact [email protected] to request a PDF of labels for your use. If you have a large truck drop off, please give us advance notice at [email protected].

A wonderful turnout in Atlanta for our first project tour of the year. Distinguished leadership, dedicated sponsors, SEGD ATL members and friends alike shared in this informative tour, which highlighted a wonderful diversity of design, fabrication and installation solutions.

Following the tours, we had plenty of time to take in the ballgame and catch up with old friends and colleagues and form new relationships with industry leaders.

Our tour host for the BatteryType Walk was SEGD President and project designer John Lutz, Partner at Selbert Perkins Design. The tour of SunTrust Parkwas guided by Atlanta Braves Creative Director Insung Kim.

“I was extremely happy to see so many old friends and new at the SEGD Atlanta Chapter’s tour of SunTrust Park and The Battery,” said Lutz. “We’re so thankful that Insung Kim from the Atlanta Braves showed us the inner workings of the Braves new ballpark, featuring lots of great branded environments throughout the space.”
