Greer Environmental Sciences Center
A tribute to President Billy Greer, the 40,000 SF facility will complete the school’s main quad at the southern end, serving as a cornerstone to the environmental sciences program. The sustainable design features a geothermal ground-source heat exchange as well as photo-voltaic panels and a small-scale wind turbine. The building contains seven customized laboratory spaces for chemistry, biology, oceanography, hydrology, marine and earth sciences as well as Geospatial Information Systems (GIS). The project is targeting LEED GOLD certification.
