Half Moon Outfitters

The Half-Moon Outfitters’ new Distribution Center is a renovated, one-story, 9,600 square foot combined office and warehouse in North Charleston, South Carolina. It was the world's first LEED NC v2.2 Platinum project, completed in December 2006. The building reduces it's energy use by 46% (modeled), domestic water use by 78% and its irrigation water by 100%. Much of the materials were salvaged, fluorescent lights dim according to the presence of daylight, rainwater from the roof is collected to flush toilets, and there are 4.9 kW of photovoltaic panels on the roof. The project cost just over $750,000. Sustainable Design and Construction Solutions was the sustainability consultant. The full case-study can be found here.
