Greenwood County Library Awarded LEED Certification
Yeargin Potter Shackelford's Greenwood County Library project has been awarded the Silver LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for the construction of a more energy efficient and "green" building.
On July 19th, 2011 GSA Business Journal spoke with Greenwood County Library Director Prudence Taylor about recieving the Silver LEED certification. Director Taylor gave praise to our team here at YPS and designers Craig Gaulden Davis for our work in acheiving the certification, saying "Their efforts are paying off – the new library costs much less to heat and cool per square foot than the old library" and also adding “The new building is open and bright. Since it opened, we’ve seen a 60% increase in overall use. It’s very exciting.”
The Greenwood County Library marks as the first and only library in the state to be LEED certified and the second project by Yeargin Potter Shackelford. YPS's "green team" is currently constructing the Clemson Golf Facility project to LEED's standards, continuing our efforts to build a more sustainable and environmentaly friendly community.
Congratulations to Greenwood County, Craig Gaulden Davis, and our team here at YPS for the successful completion of the Silver LEED Certified Greenwood County Library.
