Please join us Saturday, 10/26, for the Opening Celebration of the King Open/Cambridge Street Upper Schools & Community Complex!
This event is open to the public and is a great opportunity to tour the building and see first-hand how we built the first Net Zero Emissions school in Massachusetts. The design incorporates many energy efficiency technologies, featuring nearly 3,600 photovoltaic panels on the building to produce renewable energy that offsets the building’s energy use. The building is designed to use 43% less energy than a typical Massachusetts school that just meets the energy code and 70% less than the average school in the United States. Occupant comfort and health are incorporated into the design through daylighting, material selections, and physical and visual connections with the outdoors.
Following opening remarks, take self-guided tours of the 250,000 SF building, learn about Net Zero building design, and enjoy refreshments in the building’s Central Commons.
