DLR Group Green Schools Research Project

This study was conducted on a national sample of 12 green schools and illustrates the positive impacts of green school design. The schools participating in the study were designed with sustainability in mind, but had not been evaluated for the design effectiveness or the long-term impact on operations. Cost and utility data were collected for each sample school and compared to national and regional benchmarks. In addition, teachers and maintenance staff at each school were questioned to identify common perceptions and observations.
