Charleston RISES™ has been developed by the building performance experts at The Sustainability Institute in partnership with Green Badger and many of the top green building design experts in our region. RISES certification promotes new construction projects that are at least 30% more energy and water efficient than projects that are simply code compliant, and projects that are constructed using materials and products that do not adversely affect the health and well-being of building occupants.
Morrison Yard will be one of the first recipients of the Charleston Rises certification. Despite the significant qualifications required to receive this moniker, our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop there. The concept and location of our building promote and reward the embracing of alternate forms of transportation by providing numerous amenities geared towards bike and walk commuters. The building is also designed with the wellness of its future occupants in mind.
