I am working on a project to set up a brand new AD environment.  I am in the planning phases, and just found out that there is a half-built AD environment in place.  They do not want to use that environment.  Should I be able to just remove the server from the one AD environment and plug it into the other?  Are there any AD items that need to be created in the new environment?  Any documentation in regards to moving a SQL server from one domain to another?

That depends on the enviornment but consider using active directory migration tool to migrate ous,groups, users and server from existing domain to new domain.
