Abraham Lincoln Elementary School Case Study
In September 2010, the Abraham Lincoln Elementary School opened its new green building, ready to accommodate 600 students. This new building includes masonry and steel construction, a 3,300 square foot state-of-the-art library and media center, a 5,700 square foot gymnasium, an auditorium and a 383-seat cafeteria. The school’s original 60,000 square foot building (located next door) was demolished and replaced with a synthetic turf playing field, resilient track and parking lot. The facility contains high efficiency systems and meets or exceeds all requirements of the Massachusetts Collaborative for High Performance Schools. The designers of the school worked with the NSTAR to follow the New Construction® Core Performance Guide.
