The CT Green Building Council “acknowledges excellence in design and construction practice that supports the broader goals of accelerating the equitable, healthy, resilient, and sustainable transformation of the built environment in Connecticut and beyond.”

TSKP STUDIO is proud to announce that Buckley Elementary School received the 2022 CT Green Building Council’s Award of Merit.

With a projected Energy Use Intensity (EUI) of 18.1, Buckley Elementary School was a Renovate as New project designed to be the State of Connecticut’s first Net Zero Energy public school. Renovation projects can save 50 to 75% of the embodied carbon compared to new construction. Design focused on providing a tight envelope, high-performing building systems, and renewables such as photovoltaics and a geothermal wellfield. The project required 55,000 sq. ft. of renovation and a 9,000 sq. ft. expansion to allow for additional classrooms and specialized spaces for special education, art, music, and STEM. Buckley Elementary School will accommodate 400 students in grades K-4.
