Mainstreaming the Sustainably Designed School.
Weintraub, Deborah; Pierce, Tony
This paper documents a school building energy efficiency and sustainability project involving the Newport Mesa Unified School District, Southern California Edison's Design and Engineering Services (D&ES), and the architectural firm Perkins and Will. The paper first examines the project design objectives and then discusses each of the project elements, including the site design, daylighting issues and models, and systems for natural ventilation and thermal comfort. Also discussed is the use of DOE-2 energy modeling, which was performed in the design development stage in order to develop consensus on a finalized design. The report also lists data on various characteristics of the school building, such as the architectural features; HVAC system; building operation and internal loading; energy use; annual utility costs; and a list of average school day temperatures, which compares the impact of light and dark roofs on indoor temperatures.
