Private School Faculty Residences
This private school’s Faculty Residences consist of five 2,400 s.f. +/- LEED Platinum homes. These buildings were constructed with 90% FSC lumber, bamboo flooring, 55% recycled content tile in the kitchen and bathrooms, 90% recycled content carpet, 25% recycled content-formaldehyde- free insulation, zero-VOC paint, and LED lights throughout. Radon mats were installed to reduce exposure to this naturally occurring toxic gas. Solar panels on each of the homes provide an excess amount of energy needed for that home. The landscaping was created using native, drought- tolerant plants. Eighty eight percent of all construction waste was diverted from the Tajiguas landfill.
