Did You Know? Furman has eight LEED certified buildings including Hipp Hall, the first LEED certified building in South Carolina, and The Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities, a former Southern Living Green Design Showcase home. The Physical Activities Center (PAC) is home to a large solar thermal system that generates hot water for the building. The roof also holds a 95 kW solar photovoltaic array that provides electricity to the building, and the elliptical machines are equipped with ReRev technology, which generates electricity from the energy of students, faculty, and staff working out!
