Bath Elementary School in Lima, Ohio.

Elementary school in Lima, Ohio, receives LEED Gold

The Bath school district opened Bath Elementary in January 2015.

Bath Elementary School in Lima, Ohio, has received LEED Gold certification for its energy-efficient and environmentally friendly design.

The 106,000-square-foot campus opened in January 2015 for students in prekindergarten through fifth grade. It has capacity for 820 students. The architect is Garmann/Miller & Associates, and Touchstone CPM is the construction manager.

A geothermal HVAC system provides the building with energy-efficient heating and cooling. The school has terrazzo flooring in the corridors and commons areas, a standing seam metal roof and a wood gym floor.

The main entry opens up to a two-story daylighted atrium and connects the student dining, gymnasium, media center and main offices.

A main avenue leads to a second two-story atrium and the academic hub of the facility. Three two-story wings lead off this axis, and each corridor houses a grade of classrooms, an extended learning and supporting special education spaces.
