Combining learning with sustainability, the new High Performance Music Classroom at da Vinci Arts Middle School will demonstrate energy efficiency and green building practices in Portland Public Schools.  Winner of the Green Investment Fund grant from the City of Portland, this building will house the music classroom and practice space for the school’s band and music program while demonstrating the District’s ethic of conservation through energy and resource efficiency.  The building is designed to satisfy the highest nationally recognized green building criteria (LEED Platinum) and will excel in energy performance by using several smart passive systems. 
Sustainable Features:

  • Extensive daylighting approach providing illumination in the classroom and practice rooms cutting electricity usage.
  • Cooling is provided by increased thermal mass combined with a night-flush sequence.  Heat is stored during the day and is purged at night.
  • A super-insulated and air tight envelope designed to keep heat in during the cold months and keep heat out during summer time.
  • Energy efficient mechanical ventilation with heat-recovery provides code-required fresh air.
