Hubbell Lighting's new 185,000-square-foot headquarters in Greenville, SC, is as easy on the environment as it is to view from its majestic hilltop location overlooking Interstate 85. The four-story, $41 million building is registered to as Silver rating under USGBC's LEED program and was the second commercial building in upstate South Carolina to be LEED certified.

As a leading manufacturer of energy-efficient lighting, Hubbell Lighting wanted "to practice what they preach," says K.J. Jacobs, lead architect on the project for Spartanburg-based McMillan Smith & Partners. "They wanted to be good stewards of the environment, as consumers and as manufacturers." As a result, the new structure is 30 percent more energy efficient than a typical office building of this size.

Virtually absent throughout the building's interior is the usual "new building smell," since the design team chose paints, carpets, furniture, and adhesives that emit few or no volatile organic compounds. The building also won LEED points for diverting more than half of the construction leftovers and debris from landfills. Excess steel, concrete, wallboard, and other materials were hauled away by a recycling contractor to be reused on other construction projects. Also reused is much of the office furniture transported from Hubbell Lighting's former corporate headquarters in Spartanburg, SC.
