SHW Designs Marshall Elementary School to Meet LEED Criteria

Text size: A A

SHW Group’s Houston studio completed the design for the new two-story, 105,000-sq-ft Gloria Marshall Elementary School for Spring ISD near Houston. The new school opening in August will be the first in Houston to use geothermal heating and cooling. It is expected to save at least 25% in energy over the current code.

The school was designed to achieve LEED- gold certification and has already been accepted by the EPA to receive an ENERGY STAR rating. SHW Group designed it to meet criteria for Collaborative for High Performance Schools, the nation’s first green-building rating program designed for K-12 schools.
