Event description

Description

Come join us for a free training and tour of the newly renovated North Providence Steven Olney and James L. McGuire Elementary Schools.

This event will start at 5:00PM in the Steven Olney school for a brief presentation followed by a tour of the building. We will then travel to James L. McGuire school to also walk through and review updates.

  • The Town of North Providence and the North Providence Public School Department have constructed two new state-of-the-art elementary schools; Stephen Olney (62,304 square feet) and James McGuire Elementary Schools (61,968 square feet). Both facilities were designed and constructed to meet all of the requirements necessary to satisfy Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools (NE-CHPS) as defined by RIDE, as well as the enhanced commissioning credits defined by NE-CHPS EE 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3.

  • These facilities employ a number of energy efficiency measures to help meet the requirements of NE-CHPS, including high performance building enclosures which utilize non-water sensitive materials with high-drying potential, continuous air-vapor barriers, rigid and high-density fiber insulation, and a white “cool” roof which has the potential to reduce summer cooling loads up to 20%. These facilities also utilize roof-mounted energy recovery ventilators, coupled with heat recovery variable refrigerant flow systems, rooftop air handling units with economizing controls and occupancy setback, automatic lighting controls, reduced interior lighting power densities, and instantaneous water heaters to serve domestic water loads.
