Jones County K-12 School

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

  • Location: Trenton, NC
  • Architect: SFL+A Architects

The new school is truly unique for the county. It showcases a modern take on the traditional library, a food court themed cafeteria, agricultural focused, and a new hub for community gatherings, this K-12 school is unlike anything Jones County has seen. Teachers will be able to use the school as a learning tool with the internal dashboard that shows how the school is performing. The interior of the school will be lined with glass walls to create more visibility and a sense of openness.

The 125,000 sq. ft building will have 3 wings, separating the Elementary, Middle, and High School students. This modern day K-12 school will save energy, money, and will be significantly safer. By using geothermal well field heat pumps, LED lighting, high performance lighting and glass, a superior building envelope, natural daylight and over 100,0000 sq. ft of solar panels, the building is predicted to create 30-50% more energy than it consumes.
