The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project and the Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence, in cooperation with AIA Kentucky, announce the 2012 High Performance Sustainable School Buildings Workshop. Attendees will learn about sustainable school design concepts, how when applied, significantly reduce energy use and operating costs, reduce environmental impacts and provide a healthier teaching and learning environment. Collaboration is a critical component for a successful high performance building project. Therefore, the core design team is encouraged to attend--school administrators, school facilities personnel, architects and engineers.

Participants will visit Brooks Elementary, a newly constructed school in Bullitt County, and Cane Run Elementary, a comprehensive renovation in Jefferson County. Both projects were completed and operate below the average costs for schools in Kentucky. Project teams will identify high performance features—both in the building and on the grounds—and share strategies implemented to capture energy savings while creating a green and healthy school for students.
Sessions will be conducted by professionals in school facilities and design fields and will include school officials, architects and engineers.
