The addition project to the College of Charleston's Jewish Studies Building was recently awarded LEED Gold Certification. 

Our project

was awarded  GOLD!

Our firm, along with the assistance of DWG, Inc. Consulting Engineers and ADC Engineering, was selected to design an addition to the existing College of Charleston's Jewish Studies Building. Our LEED goal efforts were led by Keith Sanders Architecture and Consulting Services, with the construction of the building being completed by MB Kahn Construction Co., Inc. 

The Jewish Studies Addition project was originally pursuing a LEED Silver Certification, but our hard work paid off and resulted in a win with a LEED Gold Certification! The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. 

Some of the notable energy efficient design strategies, that got this project to the top, include:

  • Daylighting

  • Energy efficient HVAC systems

  • Environmentally friendly construction practices

  • Nearly half of the building materials consisting of high recycled content

  • Higher than average percentage of parking spaces allocated for fuel efficient vehicles

We are gratified to be able to announce this project's LEED Gold win, and will strive to keep reaching for Gold!
