Walmart cuts a new path through rural Texas
The Dallas Morning News
Walmart is rediscovering small-town Texas. This time it's focusing on even smaller towns than it did in the 1970s and 1980s. Walmart will open 37 stores in the state from November through the end of January. And it's doing so with its smaller Walmart Neighborhood Markets in two sizes: a 40,000-square-foot traditional grocery store and its newer 12,000-square-foot store, which sells an abbreviated selection of fresh produce, meats and groceries and has a pharmacy and fuel pumps.

Building retrofits a gold mine of efficiency gains
Sourceable
Reductions in energy consumption of more than a third can be achieved via retrofitting in three key areas — the adoption of more efficient systems and equipment, improvements to management and operations and encouraging tenants to engage in more sustainable behavior. Upgrades to systems and equipment is the chief area of focus for most energy audits, and what most people would usually associate with a building retrofit directed at improvements to efficiency.

Eliminating parking headaches
Facility Management Journal
Parking facilities are a crucial element of any building or complex. They often serve as de-facto lobbies, providing the first experience of a building to visitors and tenants. Parking facilities can therefore shape an individual's impression of an entire complex: inconvenient or unpleasant parking facilities may sour people's feelings toward a building, while clean, safe and convenient parking can make that same complex seem more attractive.
