Thanks to the recent launch of the USGBC Center for Green Schools in October 2010, as well as the unfortunate curbing of education funds, there has been a greater emphasis on developing effective models for sustainable, energy-saving public schools in districts around the country. Learn how architects are achieving these goals through resourceful case studies that include both new construction and renovation/addition projects in urban and suburban contexts. Issues of budget, design, materials, adaptive reuse, processes, neighborhood engagement, and attaining LEED for schools or the equivalent will all be addressed during the topical presentations.
