Range CASE STUDY Riverview Elementary School
Snohomish, WA While the average school building in the US has an Energy Utilization Index (EUI) of 55, this school is calculated to be approximately 18 EUI and will receive an Energy Star rating when complete. Overview of signage and building interfaces implemented in other school facilities. Learn how displays, signage and lighting can be used as a teaching tool. Learn how building occupants can benefit and learn about sustainable strategies through integrated design. Learn how integrated design can improve the learning environment and promote energy and resource savings. 10,000,000 1,000,000 2,000,000 3,000,000 4,000,000 5,000,000 6,000,000 7,000,000 8,000,000 9,000,000 10,000,000 0 NOW CASCADE MOUNTAINS FORMED

100 kW Photovoltaic Array on Gym/Commons and Playshed Roofs Photovoltaic array is the largest on any building in Washington State (100 kW at Riverview Elementary and 100 kW at Machias Elementary). Ground source heat exchange loop provides all heating and cooling for the school: 94 bores, 345' deep Exterior sign describing ground source heat exchange system. Accurate scale depication of ground loop bores vs. building size Geological Timeline of the Site History Geological History Timeline is Depicted in Plaques Embedded in Porous Concrete Bike/Jogging Path District’s goal is to create a facility for at-risk students that every parent in the district would want their student to attend
Both high school programs housed in typical old buildings, one built in the 1930’s and two round elementary buildings built in 1969 CASE STUDY Designed to house a traditional alternative high school program, a high school re-entry program and a high risk targeted middle school program Secondary Learning Center
Renton, WA The existing site is typically wet, and can be characterized in four zones. New building located at the “top” of the site
Rain gardens and pervious paving treat and hold surface water to recharge the aquifer.
Rainwater is harvested from roofs for use in toilets.
Early concept sketches
Building layout and form driven by educational program
District wanted to provide career and technology options that couldn’t be provided in separate facilities.
Instructional classrooms at west with PE and CTE at east end.
Compact building oriented east/west for solar exposure,
First floor houses career center, re-entry program, administration . 2nd floor houses
alternative (guided program),
media center
middle school (directed) program Actual building energy use will be reflected in interior accent lighting that will change from red to yellow to green to blue (RYGB) to reflect energy consumption. Masonry walls bisecting the building will visually break down façade into “separate buildings." The entire building performance is reflected on a larger light bar located at the building entry, easily visible to the community. Signage and interactive displays in the foyer describe sustainable features, divided into:
Energy - Air - Water
