SemaConnect, a Blink Charging Co. and leading provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions to the North American commercial, residential, and fleet market, announces its newest installation with Brown Investment Properties (BIP) at the new Battleground Office Building in Greensboro, North Carolina. The four new SemaConnect charging stations at the property are open to all employees and tenants working at the building.
The Battleground Office Building, located at 1007 Battleground Avenue is Brown Investment Properties & Windsor Companies’ new corporate headquarters and the fourth property for BIP to install SemaConnect EV charging stations. The new office building was completed in August 2022 and is designed with sustainability in mind. To meet the highest top sustainability standards, Brown Investment included energy efficient features, including light sensors, solar glazing on windows, and smart SemaConnect stations, to name a few.
“SemaConnect has been helping us meet tenant needs and stay ahead of the curve since our first installation several years ago,” said Lance Ramsey, director of development at Brown Investment Properties. “At BIP, we’re focused on growth and high-value, sustainable amenities. Our new EV charging stations promote Brown Investment Properties’ corporate sustainability programs and make driving electric vehicles possible for our employees and tenants.”
Battleground Office Building’s four new SemaConnect’s Series 6 charging stations are installed on two dual pedestals and feature SemaConnect’s latest technology for commercial real estate. The ENERGY STAR certified products feature a sleek aluminum exterior, compact design, interactive LED lights, and a retractable cable management system for a truly modern look. With the SemaConnect Cloud, BIP management can control access, add a pricing plan, and view reports on usage, sustainability, and energy consumption across its entire office and multifamily portfolio. The SemaConnect stations are compatible with all plug-in electric vehicles, including Tesla, Rivian, Volkswagen ID.4, and the Ford F-150 Lightning.
Ramsey adds, “After working with SemaConnect on installations at three of our multifamily properties that have since been sold to new owners, we were thrilled to continue our corporate EV charging program at the new headquarters. As we expand our portfolio, we plan to add SemaConnect charging stations at every future project, including 10+ stations in 2023.”
“The United States is witnessing a major shift in EV sales as five per cent of new car sales are now powered by electricity,” said Mark Pastrone, Chief Operating Officer at SemaConnect. “Brown Investment Properties is setting an example for other commercial developers by adding EV charging as an amenity at their headquarters and multifamily communities. We are honored to support their corporate sustainability initiatives and look forward to assisting BIP in expanding their EV needs in the years to come.”
