LEED Silver for Schools


A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School of Engineering, features a metal “cube” that organizes the front and rear entrances and frames an exceptional view of downtown Greenville. The building was designed on multiple levels to take advantage of the site that slopes down to the Reedy River. The $13.4 million dollar project is unique for many reasons:

– First engineering technology elementary school in South Carolina.
– Named for a local civil rights leader, A.J. Whittenberg is the first inner-city school built since segregation
– Constructed on the same site and shares facilities with the Salvation Army’s Kroc Community Center, also designed by CGD, which houses a swimming pool, full-size gymnasium, an after school program and a theater.
