Case Study

Georgia Southern Lakeside and Landrum Dining Halls

The LEED Silver Certified Landrum and Lakeside dining halls are a prime example of managing multiple simultaneous LEED projects – one a rehab/addition, the other new construction – to meet sustainability and usability goals. Both projects are infill, redevelopment sites located w/in the Georgia Southern Campus in Statesboro, GA.

The Dining Halls are cutting-edge food services facilities for students at GSU. The new facilities are a beacon of sustainability for GSU and its students, providing a healthy, high performance environment for education and continued learning and healthy lifestyles. Water use was cut inside the building by over 45% through the use of low flow plumbing fixtures. Energy savings of over 20% are a result of a high-efficiency chiller while T5 and compact fluorescent lighting provides a high-quality dining and food preparation environment without excessive electricity consumption. Low emitting products and finishes were used throughout, as were products with no added urea-formaldehyde, all which complement the healthy lifestyle choices offered by the dining hall.
