Title: Newport Coast Elementary School, Newport Beach, Showcase Project for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability
Abstract: The newest school in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District has adopted design concepts for energy efficiency and sustainability while serving as an educational vehicle for incorporation of energy-conservation features into designs. The design team, working with community and staff input, integrated energy efficient technology, recycled "green" materials and design concepts to reduce long-term energy costs. Many sustainable features were included in the design (natural daylighting, solar water heating, reclaimed water systems, and drought tolerant landscaping).
