The project team has held multiple sustainability charettes to define sustainability goals for the project which fall into the following categories: Health & Well-being, Materials & Equitable Design, Waste & Water, and Energy & Carbon.
Below are example goals and strategies within each category:
|Sustainability Category||One Example Goal||One Example Strategy|
|Health & Well-being||Access to fresh air in regularly occupied spaces||Maximize occupant control (lighting, temperature, flexible furniture)|
|Materials & Equitable Design||Inclusive and equitable design and process||Mothers’ room for staff and teachers|
|Waste & Water||No potable water use for irrigation||Rainwater reuse for irrigation|
|Energy & Carbon||Reduce global warming potential by 5% from baseline||All electric building|
At each phase, the project team will work to incorporate sustainable design elements where feasible and work to understand the goals of the community.
