Green Building Design

How does the school follow Green Design Principles? Why is this important?

  • The new school will be more energy-efficient than any other building in the school district, and will follow the Maine High Performance Schools standards.
  • An energy management system will control the artificial lighting and mechanical systems. The system will automatically shut off areas that are not in use, saving significant energy costs
  • The building is zoned so that extensive community use can happen in the gym, cafeteria, library, and auditorium while the rest of the school is powered down.
  • All lighting, motor, and other electrical devices will be extremely energy-efficient.
