Savannah Mayor Otis Johnson has proclaimed April 25 as Case Veterinary Hospital Centennial Day as the hospital celebrates 100th year in business. The hospital will host a birthday party Saturday, April 25 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Savannah Alderman Mr. Larry Stuber will present the Mayor’s proclamation at 2 p.m. followed by 100 candles blown out by family’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th generations.

The major milestone will not only serve as a celebration but also a thank-you to Savannah for allowing Case to care for their pets over the past century. This fun and educational event will take place at the hospital’s location, 111 Eisenhower Drive.

Party-goers are invited to take part in the free face painting, moon bounce, police dog demonstration, behind-the-scenes hospital tour, children’s games and booths, demonstrations of endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery, door prizes and give-aways, sodas, hotdogs, and snowcones.

The hospital will be closed during the event but a "Stuffed Animal Surgery Unit" will be available for children to bring their favorite stuffed animals in need of repair and actually assist in the "surgery".

Parking is available in the lot behind the Toys R Us and Bed Bath and Beyond buildings, and the hospital will provide a golf-cart ferry to and from the parking lot throughout the event.

Case Veterinary Hospital is a full service animal hospital that has been serving Savannah’s animals for more than 100 years. Located on Eisenhower Drive, they are vastly experienced in providing services to sick or injured dogs and cats. Case Veterinary Hospital is also the place to take your pet for preventative care, to be spayed or neutered or to receive vaccinations.

Granite Mill, part of the Enterprise Mill commercial and residential complex, has achieved LEED Gold status for the historic interior and exterior renovation and build-out of residential and commercial space which features a rooftop solar panel, adaptive reuse of granite, and on site recycling.
 
Enterprise Mill has two hydro turbines located next to the Augusta Canal, currently providing electrical power to the entire complex – including residential apartments and local businesses – generating enough electricity to sell back to the grid.  The entire hydroelectric station is capable of producing over six million kwh of electricity per year and Enterprise Mill uses around four million kwh annually.
 
Construction of the 15,000 square foot Granite Mill was completed in 2008, while the remainder of the mill was renovated in 1999.  Melaver Construction and Development provided the LEED construction management and Melaver Sustainability Consulting set the goals to achieve, and provided the LEED guidance and documentation.  Capers & Associates of Augusta was the general contractor for the project.
 
Granite Mill is different from typical construction, as over 100,000 gallons of water will be saved per year now that new low flow fixtures have been installed.  Indoor air quality has been improved for future tenants by using low VOC (non toxic) paints and sealants. Other sustainable features which added to LEED certification include the use of salvaged and local recycled materials, Energy Star appliances, ceiling fans, and lighting fixtures, and no ozone chlorine based chemicals were used in cooling and refrigeration units.
 
The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is a standard for Melaver, Inc., a Savannah based sustainable developer who developed the first LEED retail shopping center in the nation, Abercorn Common.
 
 "Buildings are a prime example of how human systems integrate with natural systems," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. "The Granite Mill project efficiently uses our natural resources and makes an immediate, positive impact on our planet, which will tremendously benefit future generations to come."
 
Sustainable Fellwood in Savannah is part of the USGBC LEED for Neighborhood Development pilot program.  Melaver Inc. is the master developer for Sustainable Fellwood, which is a mixed-use, mixed-income redevelopment project on 27 acres, just west of the historic district. Phase one, which includes 110 residential apartment units,  is nearing completion and will be ready for occupancy in May.  www.SustainableFellwood.com

(SAVANNAH, GA) A Book Launch Party of Martin Melaver’s Newly Released Book

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

www.melaver.com

Martin Melaver, CEO of Melaver, Inc., will discuss and sign brand-new copies of "Living Above the Store: Building a Business That Creates Value, Inspires Change, and Restores Land and Community" April 22, from 6-8 p.m. at Papillote restaurant, 218 W Broughton St.
 

The book, just released by Chelsea Green, has been called "visionary" and "truly superb work." Paul Hawken, the author of "The Ecology of Commerce," says Melaver "breaks the mold on business writing." Ray Anderson of Interface wrote the foreword.
 

"’Living Above the Store’ is the right book for these difficult times, when business needs to regain trust," writes Marc Gunther, contributing editor of Fortune. "Melaver starts with specific stories of running a family business, sharing successes and failures, frustrations and joys, and then broadens out to illuminate general principles for running a sustainable business. These stories still stick in my mind, long after I have put the book away."
 
The economic crash of late 2008 is just the latest evidence of the truth that many have known for so long: that too much of our modern economy is based on a house of cards. We need businesses that not only factor their impact on people and places into their equations for success but also strive to restore the communities and environments in which they operate. How can this be done?
In "Living Above the Store," Martin Melaver provides a roadmap for creating such a business. It’s not only a "how to" but a "why to" that challenges business as usual to change.
 

"Living Above the Store" brings us into the story of Savannah-based Melaver, Inc., a third-generation, 70-year-old family real estate business, as it evolves toward becoming a thought and product leader in sustainable business practices. It is part business management theory and part case study, where sustainable principles meet sustainable practices, always grounded in day-to-day practice.
Melaver’s grandmother started a corner grocery store in Savannah that became a regional grocery chain, M&M Supermarkets. When the grocery business was sold in 1985, the newly formed Melaver, Inc. turned its attention to real estate holdings. Martin Melaver took over in 1992. The company has a national reputation as a leader in sustainable development, having developed the first all-retail LEED shopping center in the country, Abercorn Common, including the first LEED McDonald’s worldwide. It also developed one of the first LEED certified buildings in the U.S. which is also on the National Register of Historic Places.
 
"Living Above the Store" demonstrates how to:
· Adopt a business model that provides for economic success while contributing to society and the environment
· Shape a business culture that is restorative to a workforce by helping employees realize their highest potential
· Leverage an ethos within a business that "ripples outward" to foster restoration of both land and community
· Embrace a notion of limits to growth
· Reframe ideas about competition, proprietary knowledge, and business success
 
"Living Above the Store" is for readers who care about issues of community and sustainability as well as for those who want to learn more about how a socially responsible business can first redefine, and then find, success.
Melaver grew up in Savannah and received his BA from Amherst College. He holds a Masters and PhD from Harvard University and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern. He is a past Fulbright scholar to Tel Aviv University, a recipient of a Mellon fellowship to Jesus College, Cambridge University, and a Lady Davis Fellowship to Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He is the author of numerous articles on sustainable building practices, is the co-author of "The Green Bottom Line," published by McGraw-Hill. He has been a featured/keynote speaker at various conferences and guest lecturer at Harvard, Dartmouth, and other academic institutions.
 
Melaver currently serves as the Board Chair of the Georgia Conservancy, is a board member of Urban Land Institute’s Sustainability Council, the Ossabaw Island Foundation, the Savannah Country Day School, the Chatham Environmental Forum and serves as an advisory board member for various other companies and organizations.

Reviews of the book:
"Living Above the Store" is the right book for these difficult times, when business needs to regain trust. Melaver starts with specific stories of running a family business, sharing successes and failures, frustrations and joys, and then broadens out to illuminate general principles for running a sustainable business. These stories still stick in my mind, long after I have put the book away."

-Marc Gunther, contributing editor, Fortune
"Living Above the Store" breaks the mold on business writing. It is a book about the greening of business to be sure, but it is literature first, brilliant disquisitions and narratives that place commerce within the broader context of history, culture, and the cherished human values that bind us together. Martin Melaver has enlarged the vocabulary of commerce and restored it to a place of honor, a timely gift in an era of disillusionment."

– Paul Hawken, author, "The Ecology of Commerce"
"Martin describes the evolution of his ideas and practices with refreshing candor and humility. He is a role model for me, my students, and anyone interested in building a values-based, sustainable business."

– John Vogel, Adjunct Professor
Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth
"The most sustainably growing family business leaders, I find, are philosophers of management. ‘Living Above the Store’ is a compelling example. Further, it is a wonderful story built on wonderful stories. All business leaders will be inspired by the power of connecting driving values with convincing stories."

– John L. Ward, Clinical Professor
Kellogg School of Management and Principal
The Family Business Consulting Group
"At long last, a visionary work that reminds us what businesses once were, and can once again be. Martin Melaver has shared with us the story of his remarkable real estate company, eloquently teaching us how to run a business that is not solely about making a buck, but about building a sustainable society. Mandatory reading for leaders from all sectors – business, NGOs and government – who believe that our work should make the world a healthier, kinder and more prosperous place."

– Eilon Schwartz, Director
Heschel Center for Environmental Learning and Leadership, Tel Aviv
"Martin Melaver’s beautiful retelling of his family and business experience provides valuable professional management directions for realizing ethically based business practices that are crucial to our society’s health. General readers will also be inspired by the author’s advice, personal journey, and approaches to the challenges he’s taken on."

– Michael Singer, artist/designer
"There is a third century teaching that says, ‘Do not separate yourself from the community.’ Commentators since have interpreted this to mean that even if one can accomplish more alone, distancing oneself weakens the entire community. The unique contributions of every individual are critical to the dialogue and discussion which nourish the community. Martin Melaver offers his own commentary on the building and sustaining of community. Each chapter is multi-layered and engaging. Not only does Melaver aspire to connect his actions to a vision of ‘Building a Business That Creates Value, Inspires Change, and Restores Land and Community,’ but he inspires others to do so as well."
 
– Rabbi Nina J. Mizrahi, Director Pritzker Center for Jewish Education
Jewish Community Centers of Chicago
"Martin Melaver’s ‘Living Above the Store’ about the transformation of his third-generation family business is engaging and informative. It is a story of remarkable change through a thoughtful, collaborative dialogue of discovery with his family, colleagues and community. He challenges conventional tenets and offers a business plan utilizing diversity, shared values, common purpose and a land-community ethic that is restorative for human and nature. ‘Living Above the Store’ is for readers interested in realizing a business’ highest potential and regaining a more authentic sense of themselves or for anyone wanting to develop a life plan for the 21st Century."

– Bob Berkebile, BNIM Architects
"A truly superb work, ‘Living Above the Store’ has challenged my thinking about management, and Southface will be a better organization as a result. Martin Melaver is smart and articulate, and has the courage to be honest. Creating a sustainable economy requires a transformational shift in the thinking of business. Melaver embraces this challenge and his book is a compass not only for businesses, large and small, but also for government, non-profits, and even individuals."

– Dennis Creech, Executive Director, SOUTHFACE
Responsible Solutions for Environmental Living

Martin Melaver, CEO of sustainable consulting, construction and real estate firm Melaver, Inc., will speak to the Society for Marketing Professional Services April 7. The meeting is open to the public.
 
Melaver’s topic is "Dogs, Kangaroos and Ringtail Monkeys: Knowing Who You are Before Marketing Green for Clients."
 
"When it comes to marketing sustainability, there needs to be close alignment in terms of values and practices between a marketing firm and its client," Melaver said. "Otherwise, you are asking for all sorts of problems."

"In the world of sustainability, what speaks more loudly than anything is one’s actual behaviors," Melaver said. "Done well and you have the potential for leveraging a business to be an agent for positive social change. Done poorly, where one’s talk exceeds one’s walk, and you practice a form of hypocrisy that confirms the market’s suspicions that you’re just out to make a buck even at the cost of selling your soul."
The meeting will be held Tuesday, April 7, with networking at 11:30 followed by lunch at First City Club, 32 Bull St. With an RSVP, the cost is $20 for SMPS Members and $25 for Non-Members.
