Sustainable Design for Earth Day 2015

April 22, 2015

The Eugene Schermer Instructional building at Grays Harbor College stands as an enduring source of pride for students and the community to inspire passion for discovery and innovation in a place where Art overlaps with Science.

This project is a study in sustainability from the re-purposed building materials to the innovative uses of ground source heat pumps and natural ventilation to moderate the building's temperature. A personal favorite of those who crave natural light is the use of skylights, reflectors, and electronic tinted glass technology to balance the use of natural and artificial light.
