This is the fourth school Chauncey Meyer Architects has completed for the Rose Academy Charter High Schools. Since 1999 Chauncey Meyer Architects has been designing their High Schools.
This project uses many “Green” design strategies to mitigate utilities and maintenance cost throughout the life-cycle of the building. Windows and doors are Andersen foam insulated SEER 17 mechanical units with scroll compressors that use only the power required by the load demand, with internet control. We will be monitoring the energy use for the design of future school buildings.
This addition is using “Green” design strategies including ICF Block walls (R-38), spray foam ceiling insulation (R-30), concrete Masonry ‘Trombe’ walls, and custom dormer design to aid optimal performance of the walls, SEER 16 mechanical units, and passive solar and natural air flow through the addition to aid the interior comfort and low use of energy.
I have offered my services to redesign the interior of their new offices. It is my pleasure to assist this premier Tucson children’s charity with the move to their new offices.
