Eastside Catholic School opened its five-story, 161,000-square-foot campus in September of 2008. After 25 years of occupying leased space at two previous locations, Eastside Catholic is now nestled into 50 acres on the Sammamish Plateau and is home to approximately 850 students and 100 faculty and staff.

Eastside Catholic's facilities incorporate state-of-the-art computerized building systems for energy-efficient operation. HVAC systems are computer controlled, utilizing optimization programs based on trending patterns and sensor data, as well as economizers and natural ventilation in the classrooms to reduce cooling load. Computer-controlled lighting schedules and occupancy sensors reduce unnecessary burn-time, and energy-efficient lighting fixtures are equipped with electronic ballasts and T-8 and T-5 lamps. 

Eastside Catholic?s facilities team, each technician of which is certified as a Level II building operator, strives to find new and innovative ways to save energy through efficient operations. Within the first year of occupancy, maintenance staff members re-lamped exterior compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) fixtures with newer CFLs that draw 10W less (each) than previous lamps. Additionally, staff members made adjustments to the exterior lighting schedule (controlled by an astronomic clock) to reduce streetlight burn time by one half-hour each day for over 200,000 square feet of parking and driveway areas. Eastside Catholic's campus also features LED accent lighting in key areas, and the facilities team is exploring the possibility of a retrofit that would convert exterior walkway lighting to LED technology.
