Oak Point Elementary

Location: Smyth County, VA

Oak Point Elementary School was built and oriented on a new site to maximize daylighting opportunities and to create a safe separation of buses from visitors, employees and vehicles. The parking lot features several landscaped biofiltration gardens to manage the storm water runoff, utilizing a slow-filtering process to clean the water prior to releasing it back into the ground.

The classrooms are organized by a pair of two-story wings that are clustered by grade level. The use of roof monitors, clerestory windows, exterior and interior light shelves, dimmable fixtures that adjust their light output to incoming daylight, and customizable HVAC controls in each classroom result in huge energy savings for the school system.
