German School Gets LEED Gold Certification


Published:

The German School Washington recently received LEED Gold Certification for its new Science Building, a prestigious designation for the 540-student school in Potomac. The building features a green roof with several layers of plantings to absorb stormwater runoff, a rain screen facade, natural lighting angles that allow less use of electrical lighting, occupancy sensors and dual flush toilets. The school (8617 Cheateau Dr.) has been around for 50 years and teaches students from preschool through high school. The U.S. Green Building Council has been designating LEED buildings since 1993 in an effort to promote more sustainable and environmentally friendly construction. The school will celebrate the designation with a ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on May 8. The project was designed by Alexandria-based Geier Brown Renfrow Architects. Photo via German School Washington
