Maintaining High-Performance Schools after Construction or Renovation
Luepke, Gary; Ronsivalli, Louis J., Jr.
School Business Affairs, v75 n7 p32-33 Jul-Aug 2009
With taxpayers' considerable investment in schools, it is critical for school districts to preserve their community's assets with new construction or renovation and effective facility maintenance programs. "High-performance" school buildings are designed to link the physical environment to positive student achievement while providing such benefits as sustainability and energy efficiency. A critical element of a high-performance school is energy-efficient heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and control systems that allow schools to maintain a comfortable environment while reducing energy consumption, saving money, and improving the school's indoor air quality. Properly designed, installed, and maintained energy-efficient HVAC systems keep operating costs low and offer an environmentally responsible solution. Web-based facility management systems connect building systems and provide a common view of energy-use patterns in multiple schools across a district. These systems enable better access to information that leads to better decision making, superior performance, and a more sound investment for a school district.
