New Schools Earn EPA Honor for Energy Efficiency

The building designs of Robert Anderson Middle School, Glenview Middle School and North Pointe Elementary School have received the “Designed to Earn the Energy Star” label from the federal Environmental Protection Agency. 

The designation recognizes the designs as achieving significant design-related energy savings and projected operational cost savings. The schools were designed by Columbia-based LS3P Associates Ltd. The project manager was David Anderson. 

“We appreciate the hard work of Mr. Anderson and LS3P in ensuring our new schools are energy efficient,” said District Five Superintendent Betty Bagley. “This is both good for the environment and an important way for us to save money in the operation of our schools.” 

The EPA will display these projects in a gallery exhibit at the 2011 National Convention of the American Institute of Architects. The convention will take place in New Orleans from May 12-14.
