Project Highlights:

Sustainable Sites

  • Alternative Transportation: Through negotiations with the City of Greenville, the CGEC was able to reduce the required number of parking spaces per the current zoning ordinance by over 20% saving significant capital project funds and reducing the amount of impervious areas.

Water Efficiency

  • Innovative Wastewater Technologies: The CGEC uses 32% less potable water than baseline fixture performance requirements of the Energy Policy Act of 1992.

Energy and Atmosphere

  • Optimize Energy Performance: All building systems have been fully commissioned by a third party in order to ensure accurate installation, start-up and maintenance.

Materials and Resources

  • Construction Waste Management: Over 75% of all construction waste was recycled including concrete, asphalt, paper, metal and cardboard. Over 1,820 Tons of waste recycled (over 3.5 million pounds).

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • Construction IAQ Management Plan: All ducts and permeable materials were protected against contamination during construction; all construction filtration media was replaced before occupancy. Low VOC paints, adhesives, carpet and sealants were used throughout the building.
