White Plains City School District
This new, high-performance, 90,000sf replacement school has earned an Energy Star rating of 100, operates 65% more efficiently than a building of standard design and is the most energy-efficient public school building in New York State at the present time. The building was part of a District-Wide construction and infrastructure program. Sustainable elements of the project include geothermal heating and cooling, solar photovoltaic array, efficient building envelope, low-flow plumbing fixtures, extensive day lighting and advanced lighting controls, and the use of recycled and sustainable materials.
Designed to meet the criteria for LEED for Schools at the Gold Level and touted by NYSERDA as the “Greenest School in New York State.”
