The nearly 40,000-square-foot Greer Environmental Sciences Center, working toward LEED 2009 BD+C Gold, will embody "science on display" with fully glazed walls on the north side of the classroom laboratories, exposing science and scientific exploration.

Strategically placed sustainable features will be accessible to students who will observe and monitor the building's use of energy, water and material resources.

The facility will feature a geothermal (a ground source heat exchange) system for heating, cooling and domestic hot water, an array of photovoltaic (PV) panels, and an extensive green roof. Vegetated bio retention basins and constructed wetlands will treat stormwater runoff on-site in inventive and engaging ways that may be studied by students.
