Title: James Hart Middle School Addition, Homewood, Illinois
Abstract: In an effort to reflect the desire of the school district to reshape the way it delivers education, there was concern about the varied ways in which children learn. While adjusting the flow and movement of students and teaching techniques, the designers adopted strategies that included a new light-colored energy efficient roof, low E glazing, energy-efficient lighting and effective use of daylight in nearly all of the new spaces. Increased insulation in the roof and walls and enhanced heat recovery has contributed to increased energy efficiency.
