Elevar designed the new West Clermont High School, merging and consolidating two existing high schools into one, state-of-the-art educational facility for its 2,400 students. In addition to the many spaces built to support the academic, performing arts, and athletic aspects of a student’s high school career, the new high school was designed to achieve LEED Silver status through the U.S. Green Building Council. Some sustainable features include a chilled beam and VAV system, heat recovery, higher chiller efficiency, higher boiler efficiency, premium efficiency motors, and demand controlled ventilation. Elevar designed enlarged windows for daylighting, exterior light shelves, interior light diffusing and glare items, sloped ceilings, energy-efficient lighting with daylight harvesting, enhanced filtration on air handlers, roof monitors in the gym, skylights, and enhanced triple-paned glazing with sb60 on all windows. The high school utilizes enhanced insulation in the walls and roof, acoustic upgrades to the classrooms and learning spaces as well as the mechanical systems, low flow plumbing fixtures, and bike storage. Use of local and regional materials was used wherever possible during the course of construction, and materials were recycled as much as possible.
