USGBC Offers Tour of Nelson Place Elementary School

At a well-attended tour of the Nelson Place Elementary School this past June, members of the Massachusetts Chapter of the USGBC (Green Buildings Council) learned about some of the many energy efficiency measures taken in the design and construction of the new school, scheduled for completion this August.

Sponsored by LPA, Nitsch Engineering, the Green Engineer, and Forbo Flooring Systems, the event was an opportunity for attendees to get a preview of the building and learn about some of the sustainable design features, including super insulated windows, photovoltaic solar panels, waste management/recycling, and low VOC (volatile organic compound) paints and coatings, flooring materials, adhesives and sealants. The project is targeting LEED Silver Certification.
