Wooster Elementary School in the Greenbrier School District is a shining example of sustainability. It is the recycling center for the community and a learning environment for its students and parents on green building. As the first school in Arkansas to achieve a LEED® for Schools Silver certification, Wooster educates while enjoying lower operating costs through energy efficiency.

Seeking LEED certification, Jackson Brown King Architects designed learning spaces with cutting-edge technology to lower energy costs. To educate on green building technique traditional learning spaces were equipped with unique features such as exposed building systems.

The lighting system maintains consistent light levels on work surfaces by supplementing the natural daylight in the spaces. During peak sunlight, the amount of energy consumed by the fixtures is reduced. The use of the Simple Saver System® by Thermal Design, took advantage of the bright white fabric of the system to increase reflectivity and to enhance the daylighting features.

The total annual energy cost for the school is $54,633, an energy cost savings of 27% compared to the LEED® baseline. Each room has a carbon dioxide sensor to provide a healthy exchange of fresh air based on occupant need instead of square footage.

Wooster Elementary School, completed in September 2008, demonstrates Greenbrier’s commitment to provide an environment for its students to become life-long learners with an emphasis on green living.
