Rural schools are the common ground connecting families and community to each other and students to their potential.

One of the largest challenges that rural schools face is ongoing costs of operating and maintaining their buildings. Eisenhower High School was designed to be 20 percent more efficient than the current state energy code. To accomplish that, a life-cycle cost analysis was used to help select systems that were appropriate for the building and could be maintained by its staff.

The building orientation, envelope and sunscreens were used to control thermal gain. Enhanced commissioning made sure that the systems functioned efficiently and as designed.
