Carroll A. Campbell Jr. Graduate Engineering Center (CGEC)
- 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.
- 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).
