League City Intermediate School - A Study in Energy Efficient Design
MetadataShow full item record
For many design professionals, standardization of design and engineering strategies has become a key element in the construction of institutional facilities. Conservation features, such as innovative building design, and energy efficient electrical and mechanical systems are often considered "extras". An increase in these "extras" can mean an increase in budget, leaving the energy conscious customer with the responsibility of weighing additional investment against possible future savings. This paper is an account of the design features of a southwest Texas school project in which energy conservation was an integral, not an "extra", design factor. The result was an aesthetically pleasing, energy savings institutional facility, built within a standard budget.
