and communities. May 31,  · This guide contains recommendations for designing high performance, energy efficient schools located in hot and dry climates. A high performance checklist for designers is included along with several case studies of projects that successfully demonstrated high performance design solutions for hot and dry climates.

The guide's 10 sections scrutinize the following key interrelated components of high performance school design: site design; daylighting and windows; energy-efficient building shell; lighting and electrical systems; mechanical and ventilation systems; renewable energy systems; water conservation; recycling systems and waste management; transportation; and resource-efficient building products.

The document presents recommended design elements in 10 sections, each representing a key interrelated component of high performance school design: (1) site design; (2) daylighting and windows; (3) energy-efficient building shell. School districts can use either Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol (WSSP) or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

WSSP is modeled after the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) green building protocol and adapted to reflect characteristics that optimize high performance in Washington schools.

Volume II contains design guidelines for high performance schools. These are tailored for California climates and are written for the architects and engineers who are responsible for designing schools as well as the project managers who work with the design teams.

The manual consists of six volumes. Volume I describes why high performance schools are important, what components are involved in their design, and how to navigate the design and construction process to ensure that they are built. Volume II contains design guidelines for high performance schools.

These reports will provide the basis for the next series of Advanced Energy Design Guides, which are "how-to" guides that show architects, engineers, and building designers how to achieve above-code exemplary energy performance for buildings using existing technologies available today.

DOE bh). These design guidelines received the International Association of Business Communicator’s Silver Quill Award for a Multi-page Publication in Since then, CHPS has become a national organization that has developed standards for the design and construction of high performance schools in 13 states.

California CHPS (CA-CHPS) was developed as criteria specifically for high performance schools in California. of High Performance Building Guidelines.

A private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the design and A private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the design and understanding of public space in New York City, the Trust funds and manages projects that deploy creative design.

The Collaborative for High-Performance Schools was recognized for its mission to facilitate the design, construction, and operation of high-performance schools: environments that are not only energy and resource efficient, but also healthy, comfortable, well-lit, and properly equipped with the amenities for a quality education.

Zero energy schools are possible and practical, and architects are leading the way. This gives examples of how architects can communicate the benefits of zero energy goals to school districts, teachers and the community, and best practices architects use to achieve a zero energy design. This volume contains design guidelines for high performance schools.

These are tailored for California climates and are written for the architects and engineers who are responsible for designing schools as well as the project managers who work with the design teams. Organized by design discipline, the guidelines present effective strategies for.
