Develop a system solution to improve indoor air quality, energy efficiency and comfort in additional new space without increasing the size or changing the location of the existing HVAC equipment

Deliver a net zero design with excellent indoor air quality and reduce the maintenance burden on the Arlington Public Schools district. The challenge was meeting stringent indoor air quality requirements, which often necessitate more outside air, while minimizing energy impact to get to net zero energy.

Design a facility that would serve the district for the next 40-50 years, putting sustainability front and center in the design process along with cost-efficiency.
