LEED BD+C: New Construction v3 - LEED 2009

CCU Academic Office/Classroom Building 2

Chanticleer Dr East
Conway, SC 29528
United States

LEED Gold 2018

CCU Academic Office Classroom Building II is a newly constructed three-story 52,000 square-foot facility on the Coastal Carolina University campus located in Conway, South Carolina. The building is L-shaped in plan, and is constructed of face brick over load bearing masonry walls with concrete and steel floor structures and a metal framed, shingled hip roof. This new facility contains administrative offices for various departments, classrooms, labs, a “grab-n-go” food service area and also houses CCUs IT Department including an 24/7/365 1800-sf data center to provide redundancy to the campus.

The project utilizes energy efficient glazing, mechanical and electrical systems, sustainable site and water conservation strategies, and has achieved LEED Gold Certification.

Examples include:

  • There two bus stops within 200 feet of the building entrance including four Campus Shuttle Lines and there are 25 separate community services within one half mile of the building
  • Multiple planting beds have drought tolerant plants, and use sub-surface drip irrigation and weather based irrigation controllers
  • The building has WaterSense toilets, ultra-low flow urinals and low flow showers and faucets.
  • Energy models estimate that the building will consume 26 percent less than conventionally designed buildings. The University will conduct post occupancy measurement and verification to compare actual energy results to the modeling.
  • Construction waste practices separated steel and concrete for landfill diversion to recycle 100 percent of those products with co-mingled recycling for other materials resulting in a combined diversion rate of 83 percent for the project
  • Products procurement focused on recycled, regional and low toxin materials.
  • Spaces are designed to meet rigorous ASHRAE standards for thermal comfort and the University will verify building performance by surveying occupants for comfort.
