4H Nature Education Center
The Smith Mountain Lake 4H Center in Wirtz, Virginia wanted a facility dedicated to lake ecology and nature studies. The result is a 3,200 square foot building believed to be the first building in western Virginia designed and built to LEED standards. Many sustainable and energy efficient fixtures, finishes and strategies went into the building making it a showcase of sustainable design. Tim Colley was the designer and project manger while employed by another firm.
