MBP provided commissioning services in accordance with USGBC LEED guidelines, Energy & Atmosphere (EA) Prerequisite 1: Fundamental Commissioning and EA Credit 3: Enhanced Commissioning for the modernization of the elementary school. This project involved a new 83,488-square-foot addition to the kindergarten through fifth grade school building with a 662-student capacity, which replaced a large part of the existing facility, and renovations to the remaining 12,860 square feet for a total building size of approximately 96,348 square feet. The new addition is a two-story, steel-framed structure with brick veneer and masonry walls. The addition creates a centralized main entrance and an administrative suite located between the bus and student drop-off loops. This project also included a multi-purpose room, gymnasium, art and music rooms, a media center located on the second floor, and academic classrooms. Garrett Park Elementary School was reported to be the top energy performer for Montgomery County Public Schools for the May 2012 – April 2013 period. This project achieved LEED Gold certification and exceeded the energy use intensity goal.
