This project was a new $8.8 million, 4,500 m2 two-storey school. It is one of the largest elementary schools in the Lambton-Kent District School Board. The facility includes water source heat pumps for heating and cooling, and heating systems were designed to provide low temperature return water to achieve peak efficiency from the condensing boiler plant. Sustainable design features include a Dedicated Outside Air System (DOAS) which provides ventilation for the school and includes an energy recovery wheel. Air-distribution systems were designed to achieve optimal ventilation efficiency and demand-based ventilation control systems were provided for areas with highly variable occupancy. The project was completed in 2010.
