Bryant's new High School Addition: green and in budget.

The new $27,076,492 High School Addition in Bryant was completed in budget and is pursuing a LEED silver certification. With the square footage totaling 145,648, the cost per square foot is an astonishingly low $185.90. That is equal to or lower than current construction trends proving that "green" does not have to cost a lot of "green."

A few of the features incorporated into the design that will help obtain the green status and pursue LEED certification are natural light, low maintenance materials, low VOC materials and high efficiency mechanical systems. Project Architect H. F. Bunny Brown IV, AIA LEED AP of JBP architects stated, "Each sustainable strategy was studied not only for its energy and maintainability but also for its capital and life cycle costs."

Not only does the new high school addition boast its green features, it is also equipped with the latest technology including low flow fixtures, occupancy sensors, CO2 monitors and smart site design. The building also contains interactive boards in all classrooms, digital messaging through out, wired / wireless access and integrated AVIT control systems.
