Eagle Valley Elementary School
Eagle Valley Elementary School needed to replace their aging elementary school, built in 1973, with a newly upgraded facility to address anticipated growing enrollment. The new school program was set to create a safe and healthy learning environment where students could thrive. The school’s program included the desire to create an environmentally sustainable project and minimize operational costs.
BG Buildingworks worked with the school district, contractors and design team to develop district-wide standards for mechanical, plumbing, lighting, and technology systems to provide consistent fixtures and systems throughout the Eagle County School District. The mechanical design consisted of rooftop air handling systems with distributed variable air distribution zones and a centralized, high-efficiency boiler plant.
The building systems are controlled and monitored by a Johnson Control building automation system (BAS) connected to the district-wide central controls system for ease of maintenance as well as energy efficiency monitoring.
BG also worked with the team to develop district-wide energy-efficient LED lighting fixture standards and control systems.
State-of-the-art technology, IT, audiovisual and security systems were designed to provide the educational and safety needs of a modern elementary school.
