This was the first ever school in Savannah, Ga to be LEED certified. The Savannah Country Day Lower School consists of 52,500 sq-ft of classrooms, library, and office space. LEED certification was attained using lower-fume paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants and carpets, as well as recycled materials. Water conservation also contributes to sustainability by reducing usage by 20 percent. Some of the challenges with this project included high seismic consideration, large open spaces requiring structural solutions, and a fast-track project timeline.
