This project was a new secondary school designed for 1,200 students. The two storey school includes 45 classrooms, a double gymnasium and a cafetorium. Sustainable design features include a Dedicated Outside Air System (DOAS) that provides ventilation and includes an energy recovery wheel. Heating systems provide low temperature return water to achieve peak efficiency from the condensing boiler plant. Air distribution systems achieve optimal ventilation efficiency and demand-based ventilation control systems were provided for areas with highly variable occupancy.
