Holiday Inn & Suites West Columbia
West Columbia, SC
This 84,600 sq. ft. hotel consists of 5-stories and 122-rooms as well as a salt-water pool, sports-themed restaurant (Sporting News Grill) and 5,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, business and fitness center. As a LEED project and to reduce its carbon footprint, the hotel was designed to achieve water efficiency, reduce energy consumption with the use of occupancy sensors, LED lighting and solar PV power, focus on materials and resources by utilizing recycled material while recycling excess material, and address indoor environmental quality by installing an indoor air quality HVAC and utilizing low or no VOC content materials.
The use of recycled pool-side, furniture, tankless water heaters, rainharvesting, solar hot water heating systems, and native plants for landscape are but a few more items on a long list of steps taken to build this hotel as environmental friendly as possible. This project has been LEED® Gold Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
