On Tuesday, August 14th, 2RW’s Peter Mackey will present “Frederick County Middle School – A Model of Energy Efficiency” at USGBC Virginia’s monthly Charlottesville luncheon. The session is eligible for GBCI/USGBC and AIA continuing education credits.
In this session, Peter will describe the sustainable MEP and water/wastewater design strategies that helped the project achieve Net Zero Water and Net Zero Energy-ready status. The school consumed just 25.17 kBtu/SF of energy in the last 12 months—less than half the energy used by comparable schools.
Learning objectives for this presentation include:
- Understanding the site water generation and wastewater systems that make this building a net zero water building
- Understanding the energy reducing strategies that make this building net zero ready
- Reducing HVAC energy usage through a hybrid ground source heat pump system
- Understanding the benefits of integrated design/early engagement
2RW would like to thank Frederick County Public Schools for this opportunity and congratulates Stantec for its leadership on this extraordinary project.
