Work for phase two includedÂ construction of the new school,Â site utilities, access road and parking facilities. During phase three, the team demolishedÂ the existing 65,000-SF school and another 4,500-SF of modular classrooms, including removal of hazardous materials, constructedÂ new playfields andÂ completedÂ site work. The new school includes administrative areas, nurse's station, classrooms, library, kitchen, cafeteria, gymnasium, art and music, special education, etc. The project incorporated sustainable elements in theÂ design, such as rainwater harvesting systems, extensive recycling of building materials, daylighting, energy-efficient building systems and energy monitoring systems to provide students and staff with an enhanced environment while decreasing operating costs for the town. The energy monitoring system has an interface for students toÂ learnÂ about how buildings use energy. The building received LEED Silver certification.
