“We’re not going to have that teaching element outside the school,” said Deso. “But we’re doing all the work so that it could be put in, in the future.”
The school is considered a green school, and includes some more expensive items meant to allow the school to achieve a LEED silver designation, which would show the school construction focused on proper classroom acoustics, master planning, mold prevention and environmental site assessment, among other factors. Deso said expects rebates from utility company’s to offset the increased costs.
“And the energy savings long term are substantial. We really weren’t looking to cut corners that would have a long-term impact on the project,” said Deso.
