"Investments in our school buildings are a “triple win” for communities. This guide builds the case for a range of strategic school building improvements that can help communities address the greatest challenges facing our school facilities in cross-cutting fashion. We define opportunities and strategies that all communities can leverage to build a case for real change in their schools."
This brochure describes the USD 422 K-12 School in Greensburg, Kansas.
Presentation slides from Human Factors and Post‐Occupancy Evaluation presentation given at the NASA Net-Zero Energy workshop June 5-6, 2012.
This case study, on pages 69-70 of the attached report, provides information on upgrades and activities achieving efficiencies and cost savings in public schools. The report is the McGraw-Hill Construction SmartMarket Report: "Business Case for Energy Efficient Building Retrofit and Renovation," which is listed here: https://buildingdata.energy.gov/cbrd/resource/917.
Conventional information technology (IT) equipment and data center spaces can consume more than 100 times the energy of standard office spaces, so the potential for energy savings is huge. You can use this application guide to reduce your equipment energy consumption in any building with a data center, server closets, or other IT equipment (computers, printers, etc.). Some of these strategies are most effective at the beginning of the design process; others can be implemented at any time and be sequenced as part of the normal procurement and replacement schedule.
This checklist packet is a team-focused guide to realizing energy savings in high-performance office buildings through carefully considered lighting and control design. The checklists should be distributed among the integrated project team, including the owner, lighting designer and engineer, commissioning agent, and facility manager, at the beginning of a project and referred to regularly during design meetings and drawing reviews.
