High-Performance School Buildings
This chapter reviews some material covered in the earlier chapters and introduces some new material, presenting it in the broad context of high-performance schools. High-performance school buildings are designed to be efficient in their use of energy, water, and materials. They are intended to be not only adaptable and easy to operate and maintain but also comfortable, safe, secure, and healthy for teachers and students. The characteristics of a high-performance school building include buildings that are healthy; thermally, acoustically, and visually comfortable; energy efficient, materials efficient, water efficient, and easy to maintain and operate.
