Consulting Specifying Engineer
interviewed 6 high profile engineers who are experienced in engineering K-12 schools.
The two main topics of discussion were:
1) Energy efficiency and sustainability are often the No. 1 request from building owners during new building design. What is your experience in this area?
2) Many aspects of structure sustainability (power, HVAC, maintenance, etc.) require building personnel to follow certain practices in order to be effective. What, if anything, can you as an engineer do to help increase chances of success in this area?
