From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: Fales Elementary School

Jan. 23, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Elementary Schools category.

The first net-positive-energy public school in New England, the Annie E. Fales Elementary School in Westborough, Massachusetts, is a showcase of energy-efficient design. On track to achieve LEED Platinum certification, the all-electric facility generates 11.6% more energy than it uses. The lower-level public spaces—cafetorium, gymnasium, and administrative offices—are built into the hillside to reduce heat loss and gain. An extensive geothermal well field heats and cools the building, and north-facing clerestories support a 25,000-square-foot rooftop PV array.
