Furman University has received two Green Globes from the Green Building Initiative as part of a program aimed at achieving healthy, sustainable and resilient buildings. The phase I renovation project for North Village Housing was recognized for installed geothermal systems, an Energy Star performance score of 97, and for turf irrigated by potable water and water from Furman Lake.

With partner Triangle Construction, Craig Gaulden Davis Architecture will implement the same standards of design and sustainability excellence to the remaining 10 buildings in North Village, built in the late 1990s. Each structure contains 24 1,200sf apartments in two- and four-bedroom configurations. Along with Furman administration and facilities, Furman students were engaged in the design process to ensure the results integrated the ideas and concerns of the student body. News of the award was covered in GSA Bizwire and UpstateBizSC.
