GBBN’ers Present On CPS’ Newest Green School

Recently GBBNer’s Aaron Anderson, Steve Karoly and Andrew Plogsted participated in a presentation on the design of CPS’ newest green school – Woodford Paideia. Aaron discussed how community input and strategic site placement gave Woodford its character, its ability to use daylighting strategies, and made it a new jewel for the community. The event was hosted by Andrew’s USGBC Green Schools Committee along with the community outreach group ALI. Steve led a tour of the building, showing how the classroom layout and its technology enhance the student learning experience. Woodford Paideia is Registered under LEED for Schools and is tracking Gold, as paperwork is being completed.
