Los Alamos Public Schools
The Aspen Elementary School in Los Alamos is designed to be a high-performance, student-centered facility. It has an Energy Star Rating of 89 and incorporates sustainable strategies such as natural daylighting with thermal massing to provide passive solar heating to reduce energy consumption by 35% or $29,000 annually. It is designed to LEED Silver standards. The design is a culmination of the design committee’s vision combined with the local Los Alamos vernacular, taking cues from the original 1950 design and displaying new high-performance design features. It offers space for conventional and flexible teaching and integrates leading edge classroom technology. The entire school will be a “Teaching Tool” for students.
