Sandy Grove Middle School is designed to be the nation's first leased public school designed as a zero energy & LEED Platinum building. The building incorporates energy efficiency features such as high-efficiency HVAC systems, advanced envelope strategies, LED interior and exterior lighting, and renewable energy generation provided by roof-mounted PV panels. The building was constructed by a public-private partnership: a private company (First Floor K-12) financed and owns the building, while the local school district (Hoke County Schools) leases the school.
