FEATURES: With the goal of creating a learning environment to enhance the student learning experience for generations, the School District and the design team worked together from the outset of the project to develop a design for a building that could achieve the educational goals of the District: to support student and faculty development, demonstrate financial responsibility, and serve as an example of sustainable design strategies and technologies. Expedited Construction, Healthy & Safe Environment, High Energy Efficiency, Acoustical Benefits were also key for this project.
BENEFITS: The result is a high performance building, one of the first in Northeast PA -that not only serves the Community as a much-needed new Facility, but also as a tool for teachers to incorporate Green Building and Sustainable Design concepts into their curriculum. Filled with bright, open spaces, vibrant colors and visible equipment and controls, students have first-hand experience and exposure to the benefits of learning in, and learning about, high performance buildings.
This building was on time, on budget and was awarded LEED Silver Certification.
