Montgomery Middle School

Images Description Credits
Part of the districtís mission to build sustainably, the MMS academic building is seeking LEED Platinum certification and has improved learning environments for their most disadvantaged students.

The challenge for this project was to maximize the roof plane for solar, while adhering to the districtís mandate for a single package unit per classroom.  This innovative solution is a new strategy for school construction, enabling more districts to pursue environmentally conscious buildings. High efficiency HVAC units are located within a two story mechanical distribution hub in the center of each wing.  This unique configuration allowed for a sloped roof supporting 219KW of Photovoltaics (PV) providing on-site renewable solar-based electricity for 80% of the campus.  Exceeding Californiaís Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title-24 2008) by 35%, the project achieved all available energy points under LEED for Schools 2009, and is 90% below the relevant 2030 Commitment level.
