Waldorf School

This Smart Academic Green Environment (SAGE) was purchased to accommodate
the Waldorf School’s increasing elementary enrollment. A total of three SAGE classrooms were installed for the 2014-2015 school year.

The SAGE interior features an energy-efficient ERV (energy recovery ventilator)
mechanical system, low-velocity fans, vaulted ceiling height, and continuous dimming luminary lighting. The interior also features BIOPCM Phase Change Material in the walls that act as a thermal mass to stabilize indoor temperatures. Three solar-powered sun coolers to eliminate the need for air conditioning. The building was also designed to be LEED certifiable. Exterior features incorporate a modern architectural look with large overhangs to protect the building and Hardie reveal siding. The clerestory windows and two skylights per classroom allow the buildings to be sited to take advantage of the most natural daylighting reducing the amount of energy used on interior lights.
