Clark County district will share new technology campus with PBS station

Dec. 26, 2008
$65 million project expected to open in March

The Clark County (Nev.) School District is completing construction of a new technology campus — a $65 million, 112,000-square-foot complex that also will be the new home of Vegas PBS. The environmental and aesthetic design elements of the facility are attracting the most attention. The campus is aiming for LEED certification. The design by JMA Architects of Las Vegas features underground wells that will help cool the building in the summer. A cistern beneath the parking lot will collect runoff water and recycle it in the landscaping. The building’s interior and exterior were designed to maximize daylight and reduce reliance on artificial lighting.
