Summary of Food Lion Store #2157 Columbia, S.C.

Sustainable Features:

  • Sky lighting and automatic light dimming systems were installed to maximize the use of natural lighting and to minimize the use energy.
  • The roofing system is an Energy Star rated system for reflectivity to deflect heat from being absorbed in the building which decreases utility use.
  • Bicycle racks to encourage bike commuting and preferential parking for low-emitting and fuel efficient vehicles is furnished for the customers.
