Inside d.tech: Building a New Kind of High School

About this session:

In January 2018, the innovative Design Tech High School (d.tech) opened its doors to 550 students, the first chartered public high school built by a publicly traded corporation on its campus. The school features as many innovative physical environments as the curriculum itself, from “maker spaces” and labs to classrooms, conference rooms and common areas. One of the guiding principles for the facility was integrating the management of the major building systems, including plumbing systems, electrical generator, heating plant, cooling plant, lighting systems and fixtures, etc. Early performance data suggests the facility will easily meet its design goals including energy use 40% below comparable properties and potable water use 60% below industry averages.

1. List how the project design team selected specific energy performance goals
2. Explore how the project team selected the LEED parameters for the facility
3. Examine the specific integrations achieved across major and minor building systems
4. Evaluate early building performance data against design goals
