“James brought Varsity into this project to add to a team of professionals that could contribute a unique and fresh view on how to design a school. We’re very proud of the work we did to bring together technology, instruction, and green design to the Redding School of the Arts project. The AIA design award is an outstanding recognition of the innovation that exists at Redding School of the Arts.” -Patrick Ciccarelli, CEO Varsity TechnologiesTrilogy’s unique approach to sustainability bridges the gap between what exists outside with what can also exist inside. Some sustainable design features of Redding School of the Arts, include:
- A “hole to the sky” theme throughout allowing natural light to pour in.
- Controlled ventilation system that pumps cool air into open hallways.
- Radiant heating creates a warming spot only when students are occupying the space.
- A centrally located dashboard that displays building energy use.
