Project Information

The University of South Carolina (USC), a public university in Columbia, South Carolina, partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop and implement solutions to build a new, low-energy educational building.

The new 247,000-square foot (ft2), four-story facility houses classrooms, offices, two auditoriums, a computer lab, a library, and a small cafeteria. Additionally, the building has both a walkout basement and functional spaces on the roof, with multiple areas of green roofs. The project team is pursuing Platinum Certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED-NC version 3 rating system while also targeting zero-net energy usage.
