When it comes to educational facilities, can a design be both functional and aesthetically pleasing? Can it also be energy efficient without draining the construction budget? The answer to both questions is yes.
Most educational facilities get the job done, but offer little in terms of design and visual appeal. They may also put building maintenance and costs ahead of higher priorities, like the students and the learning environment. The Excel Homes Eco-Friendly Classroom addresses those concerns with a facility that not only provides a mentally stimulating environment, but one that’s also available in many different designs (outlined below). This cost-effective design also offers environmentally friendly features like Energy Star and green certification, which meet or exceed local codes and provide long-term energy cost savings.
Though the Eco-Friendly Classroom can be free-standing, it will likely be used to complement an existing educational campus. The following renderings show two different exterior options – one modern and one traditional – which can be used to help the Eco-Friendly Classroom blend into its surroundings or stand out from the crowd.
BOTTOM LINE: Form, function, energy-efficiency and affordability. With the Eco-Friendly Classroom, you really can have it all.
