Barnette Elementary opened in the fall of 2008 as a single-floor facility with 85,896 square feet. It has eight rooftop air-conditioning units, two condensing boilers, and variable air-volume terminal units in most of the building. Two rooftop units are constant volume.
The facility was designed to meet the energy codes in place 2 years ago. Windows were situated to enhance daylighting. Fluorescent fixtures were used throughout the facility, including the multi-purpose area. The lighting is T-8 bulbs with dual switching between inboard and outboard bulbs.
The school's energy use was reduced 4.5 percent during the second year of operation by adjusting the operational hours as we became more familiar with the building and by conversing with staff and students about how they can help conserve energy without impeding the school's function.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education continues to raise energy-consumption awareness and to use that awareness to reduce energy consumption.
