In 2009, Hotel Indigo welcomed its first guests to stay the night. Located in bustling downtown Athens, the boutique hotel is perfect for visitors coming to watch a University of Georgia football game or for a getaway to see the sites of the eclectic city. This hotel is as beautiful as it is earth-friendly. Hotel Indigo achieved LEED Gold certification and recently won the 2010 Development of Excellence in Sustainability Award from the Urban Land Institute.

While many components were used to attain these green certifications, one factor was countertops. Atlanta Kitchen, the Southeast’s premium provider of specialty countertops, completed the installation of the eco-friendly surfaces. Hotel Indigo selected Caesarstone Nougat and Quartz Reflections quartz surface to showcase in guest rooms and common areas. Caesarstone is both a LEED and GREENGUARD Environmental Institute certified product.

Caesarstone is comprised of 93 percent natural quartz, one of nature’s strongest minerals, and offers the ultimate combination of form and function, allowing for a more diverse, durable, and practical surfacing material than either granite or marble. With its environmental protection standards and its stain, crack, scratch, chemical, and heat-resistant properties, CaesarStone is the ideal choice for the four-story, 130-room Hotel Indigo.

Atlanta Kitchen, under the wider umbrella of Construction Resources, offers several environmentally-friendly countertops that are manufactured with green practices and have low VOCs. Contact Atlanta Kitchen today to see how your countertops can be beautiful and green.
