From the Suburban: The Center for Lifelong Learning, a school for autistic and multiply disabled students in Sayreville, N.J., has become the first public school in the state to receive the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum rating. The school uses all-natural building materials and green power. Signs posted on the walls of the 85,000-square-foot facility detail various aspects of its environmental design: linoleum flooring, low-emitting materials, water conservation, lighting system controls, aerators on faucets and showers, solar panels, waterless urinals and dual-flush toilets. The facility has 24 classrooms, a gym, a fitness center, a lap pool and zero-entry pool, a green house, a sensory room and dedicated occupational, physical and speech therapy rooms.
