Overview

The facility provides additional classrooms and an auxiliary gym and offers state-of-the-art classrooms for up to 150 students in sixth through eighth grades. The design is supportive of interactive instruction and provides an energy efficient, quality indoor environment. Students can learn about renewable energy systems and the importance of sustainability through wind and solar energy demonstration projects in the outdoor learning areas.

Features

TLC used energy modeling to assure compliance with DoDEA's standard requirements. Ultimately, the completed design achieved an energy reduction of 32% against the 2007 baseline. The school uses a separate condenser and DX cooling coil to provide cooling. Heating is provided by energy-efficient, natural gas-fired boilers with heating coils located in each box. Structural systems comply with applicable setbacks and antiterrorism force protection requirements.
