Lansing Middle School
6 Ludlowville Road
Lansing, NY 14882
Lansing Central School District is a suburban public school located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. The Middle School is located at 6 Ludlowville Road, Lansing, NY. It serves student grades 5 through 8. Over 350 students are currently enrolled.
The original two-story structure was constructed in 1928 to serve grades K through 12. A two-story addition was completed in 1952, expanding the area to include a new cafeteria, new gymnasium, administrative offices, more classrooms and conversion of the old gym into the library. The district added a single-story section in 1958 to expand the number of classrooms, construct an auditorium and create spaces for the music program. In 1997 a two-story addition was built to accommodate the 8th grade wing, adaptive P.E. and a large group instruction room, bringing the total space to its current 99,168-square-foot size. The facility includes a gymnasium, auditorium, cafeteria, computer labs, and kitchen in addition to various classrooms and offices.
Technology has also kept pace with educational demands of the twenty-first century. Many classrooms in this building are equipped with an interactive smart board and have an increased number of student-designated computers. There are three computer labs in the middle school along with integrated wireless technology. Currently the district is moving to a virtual environment, so power consumption is anticipated to decrease substantially.
Major energy improvements began in 1997 with the conversion from steam to hot water heating systems throughout the entire facility. Roof top units and classroom univents combined with the addition of an energy management system allowed for greater control of individual areas. In 2005, two new energy efficient boilers replaced the old outdated models during a small capital project, which also installed a new roof membrane with an upgrade to insulation and brick restoration to tighten up the exterior sheathing of the building. These energy-focused construction projects had a major impact on decreased consumption of electric and natural gas throughout the building.
In 2009, the district entered into an Energy Performance Contract that took energy conservation efforts to another level. All interior lighting was converted to T-8 lamps with electronic ballasts. Additional measures included another upgrade to the EMS, insulation along the wall headers, low-e window film, weather-stripping on exterior doors and replacement of all motors rated for 5 hp or more with variable speed energy efficient models.
The Lansing community prides itself on its commitment to renewable energy sources and continued conservation measures implemented within the school buildings. The most recent energy improvements have decreased electric consumption by more than 95,000 kWh and natural gas by 1,300 therms annually for the middle school. These savings reflect the difference between pre-construction in 2009 and post-construction in 2011.
EPA ENERGY STAR Certification has helped to validate the initiatives undertaken since 1997. It also reinforces the need to continue moving forward with energy conservation measures and innovation.
