It starts with a vision. For MWV's Community Development and Land Management office in Nexton, that vision was a future-focused, sustainable business model for the community.
MWV found the perfect partner for executing this vision in Charleston-based architecture firm LS3P. Their smart architecture, powerful interior design planning, and keen attention to sustainability has resulted in a big win for the office space - Four Globes, the highest level of certification by Green Building Initiative's new Green Globes for Sustainable Interiors rating system.
The 21,000-square foot space incorporates a wide variety of sustainable design strategies. Motion-censored lights in office spaces conserve energy, HVAC systems are zoned for occupant control, and natural materials used throughout the design contain significant recycled content, among many additional environmentally-efficient details.
The project is only the second in the United States to be certified under the new Green Globes for Sustainable Interiors® pilot program. Green Globes is administered by the Green Building Initiative in order to encourage and support sustainable design practices.
