Martin Guitar Distribution Center Presented with CRED Green Building Award

The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber Commerce presented the 2013 Commercial Real Estate Development (CRED) Green Building Award to the Martin Guitar Distribution Center in Forks Township.  C.F. Martin & Company, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of acoustic guitars, had acquired a 24,000 SF industrial building formerly known as the Famous Smoke Shop, which specialized in cigars. The building was renovated and repurposed, achieving LEED certification. BIA’s Bob Korp, AICP, LEED AP, provided LEED consultation to Ondra-Huyett Associates, the construction firm responsible for the building renovations.
