About Our LEED-Focused Facility Design
Complexions Spa for Beauty & Wellness is not only the first LEED Gold Certified Spa for New Construction in America, but also an EnergyStar Small Business of the Year for 2008 recipient. These honors ratify the authenticity of our commitment to providing our clients with a wellness experience that is as energy efficient as it is environmentally friendly. We believe being efficient on both the operational and facility level creates serious savings that can then be passed down to our customers – creating extra value that we have found is really hard to match. We also believe that a guest’s wellness experience is only as good as the environment that it is provided in. The vast majority of buildings are awash in chemical, biological and particulate pollutants linked to many chronic illnesses. Complexions Spa strives to not only minimize these harmful toxins but also educate both our guests and greater community on the benefits of working and living within environments that help our bodies to be their absolute healthiest – each and every day.
Complexions was designed using materials that were eco-friendly and to be the most efficient. When you walk in you will notice the warmth from the earth tones used in paint and wall covering, natural materials like stone and marble and the unique wood used throughout. The cork flooring offers a beautiful esthetic quality along with the soft feel and the acoustical benefit. The smell is very fresh and clean especially because the absence of VOC’s and the clean air quality control. The lighting is soft yet we incorporate LED, and natural sunlight florescent bulbs using less than one watt per square foot. Clients have their choice of music in each of our treatment rooms while we play a more upbeat music selection in our salon and retail boutique.
Everything we did during our successful effort to achieve Gold LEED Certification was governed by a company philosophy dedicated to efficiently and effectively achieving an end-to-end health and wellness experience for both our clients and ourselves. In today’s highly competitive spa and salon industry, taking shortcuts to perfect skin, hair, relaxation or rejuvenation is simply not an option. For Complexions, both energy and resource efficiency allows us to provide our clients with more quality, more care and more expertise at an equal or lesser cost. That said, Complexions can be many things to many people – some love us for the soft-touch of corked floors and the natural smell of 4-zone-5-times-filtered air; others love the warm professionalism, knowledge and skill of our staff and diversity and quality of treatments and therapies offered; and still others enjoy the cleanliness of our rooms and ability to freely enjoy extra amenities including steam, sauna, relaxation solarium and tea bar. Of course, what all of these loves have have in common is an attention and focus on our clients heath and wellness few, if any other Spas and Salons in America can equal.
