Cross-Laminated Timber

That Reduces Carbon Emissions

On a shared site, McLoughlin Middle School and Marshall Elementary School use locally sourced Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) to integrate efficient structural spans with natural textures, and to reduce the building’s impact on global warming. Transparent window walls bridge between wings of the building and punctuate main street corridors, creating direct visual access to nature and enhancing a multi-sensory experience that supports a calm, relaxed, and environmentally conscious learning environment.

Energy Efficient Systems

That Create Long-Term Savings

Breaking away from a traditional school gym, the iTech Prep turfnasium supports year-round, outdoor learning, while simultaneously reducing heating and cooling loads on the building. Integrated within the overall building form and opening towards a pastoral landscape, mesh screen walls allow fresh air to flow through the space while protecting students from the elements.
