>project information
Hellmuth+Bicknese Architects is the Sustainable Design Consultant for the gymnasium, band room, exercise room addition and new student commons/meeting space and offices. Working with William Tao & Associates, we have finalized the design recommendations based on an in-depth daylighting analysis evaluating the different needs of each space. The goal of the daylighting is to eliminate the use of artificial lighting wherever possible during school hours and to reduce the heating load on the system. We have also evaluated the use of geothermal heat pumps for the HVAC system and building integrated photovoltaics on south fenestration coupled with shading structures.
