Join the DC Metro Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute for a very special April meeting! Doug Gehley of VMDO Architects will present on their Net Zero Energy School project, Discovery Elementary, of Arlington.“Discovery Elementary: The Mid-Atlantic’s First Net-Zero Energy School” by Doug Gehley, AIA, LEED AP
Discovery has been designed to be a “net zero” energy school, meaning that the amount of
energy provided by on-site renewable energy sources is equal to the amount of energy used.
The New Building Institute keeps a list of verified net-zero buildings: there are currently
only 39 total in the United States, with only three full-sized K-12 schools. Discovery Elementary is
expected to be the largest “net zero” energy school in the United States.
