The Peabody School project includes the addition of a 12,500 sf main story over basement classroom wing to the existing school building. The addition includes an elevator to ensure full access to all areas of the school. Interior upgrades made to meet LEED include the use of products that have a low impact on the environment and also contribute to improved indoor air quality (IAQ) when compared to traditional finish materials, which are often high in VOCs. Energy conservation is also a big part of LEED, and as such, the building hosts an extremely efficient heating and cooling system that also serves to improve IAQ by maintaining an improved fresh air change over. The building also utilizes more than 20 skylights, which work in conjunction with the lighting system to conserve energy while providing effectively lit classrooms and hallways. Finally, the exterior is sheathed in masonry and concrete siding— products that provide long lasting and efficient uses of material resources.
