Elm Hall is Emory & Henry's newest residence hall. Built using modular construction to cut down on waste and costs, it is expected to receive LEED Silver certification. Elm features high-efficiency lighting, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and Energy Star-rated HVAC systems that are individually controlled and linked to occupancy sensors to reduce energy consumption.
Hickory Hall, currently under construction, is being built using the same modular construction method as Elm Hall. It was designed with the intent of achieving Passive House certification. Passive House is a popular standard in Europe and is one of the most stringent building energy codes in the world. To achieve this, Hickory Hall was redesigned with high-performance windows, more insulation, and a tighter building envelope.
