 The wood used in this store originally came from the forests around Lake Charles in Calcasieu Parish or Louisiana.

 HVAC units and the lighting panels are used to monitor and track electricity usage. This data is used to identify energy wasting behavior, potential equipment damage and plan for more efficient systems in future stores.

 Lighting energy consumption is reduced through the installation of automatic lighting controls, such as: occupancy sensors, an astronomical time clock, programmed time functions that turn off the lights in the “back of house” areas when the rooms are unoccupied. Additionally, the lighting design allows for sales floor general lighting to respond to natural daylight from skylights and some lights in the sales floor area during daytime hours.

 Energy efficient LED lamps installed throughout the majority of the store reduce the energy consumption of the electric lighting system.
