Sustainability is at the core of LPA’s work and company culture. Sustainable design practised at LPA is an integrated ‘holistic’ process that is treated no different than any other program element. This book documents a process of planning, design, construction and operations of K-12 schools where appropriate sustainable solutions can be a part of every school regardless of budget or program. Through an extensive step-by-step planning and design process and a series of built case studies, all stakeholders in the school planning process will see how an integrated holistic process can achieve sustainable goals that are in balance with budget and other constraints. Case studies in this title cover renovations and new construction that are at the forefront of a considerable change in the culture of school planning – a change from added cost to added value. Sharing the success of these schools will ensure that there are thousands of sustainable schools in our future for the next generation of students.
