Green School Design.

Web Abstract: 
Uses the Michael J. Homer Science and Live Center at Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton, Califonia, as an example of early and high attainment in the LEED certification scheme. The LEED Platinum-rated facility consumes 69 percent less energy and 50 percent less water than a typical school building of similar size. Intensive green strategies are described, including energy recovery from appliances, photovoltaics, and evaporative cooling.
