Stakeholder wish list
CELL- Soil/kitchen labs for 70 students , lecture space, dance space, seminar space, office looking over farm, welcoming center.
CLUC- Ok’d 5 acres expansion north of Demeter’s garden, take out the Deciduous before the Conifers.
Facilities- make it solid, clean, operational, and due it fast!!!
Mission Statement: To create a place of learning that is welcoming to the community and promotes a natural atmosphere in the build environment awhile encouraging sustainability and preserving the history of the farm.
Class Goals & Strategies
Site: minimal impact, adaptability to site programs, habitat presentation and permaculture design.
Waste: human, construction, and occupancy- resources grey to black water with compost toilets and constructed wetlands; green materials, best management practices, construction process; building training requirements for operations, maintenance and occupants.
Water: on site resources, conservation, and reuse with storage, filtration, aquifer recharge, gravity feeds, net zero “watergy” (energy used to move water), retention.
Materials: regional material, collection, reuse, local labor and artisan craftsmanship, low embodied energy, simple, biodegradable and/or recyclable.
Energy: Net Zero with on site production, conservation and systems education, high efficiency- lights, HVAC, appliances, etc., passive lighting/heating/cooling.

Site Goals :
Short Term: -Minimal site impact -Incorporate existing trees into layout -Improve welcoming aspect of the farm -Provide outdoor event and common areas Long Term: -Use native plants for re-vegetation -Expand connections between farm functions -Improve access between campus and the farm -New trails Building Goals: Short Term: -Use 100% FSC Lumber -Provide room for 75+ students to participate in food/soils lab -Improve the welcoming aspect of the farm -Minimal building footprint -Provide a flexible and adaptable learning environment Long Term: -Flagship for Organic Farm expansion -Create a 75 + year building -Healthy structure through proper maintenance -Ability to adapt to future uses
Mission North East Site:
Our goal is to design an educational building that has both a low impact on the environment and ties in design and form to the surrounding Evergreen Organic Farm.
Integrated Farm waste
The design from Quad two integrates with the current farm. Our design offers a finer facility for learn with the proper equipment and space for potential classes. Additionally By having a through pagoda entrance to the new facilities abutting Demeters our aim to connect the existing farm with the surrounding forest. The structure of our building allows great passive heating and out on the second growth and pine forest.
An experience and participation in Sustainable Design: "A building that is as educational as the programs inside of it"
Efficient and Practical Utilities: "Let's do what makes sense"
Biomimicry: "We want to bring the outside in, and the inside out- Take cues from nature"
Aesthetic Congruity: "Make it look like it belongs on the farm and as a part of campus"
User friendly controls, supplement and enhance with daylight
Visible Utilities, make educational but not distracting
Plan/consider a "Closed Loop Farm"/ PV array option at an optimal site on farm
Operable windows/doors for natural ventilation
Thermally massive building envelope (Straw bale, cement, earth for high R-values)
Rainwater catchment, gravity fed [?]
limit impervious surfaces "No blackwater in the drinking water" = composting toilets
Graywater recycling, Bioswales
Integrate Demeter's to create usable landscape
Outdoor classrooms, covered walkways and gathering spaces to minimize conditioned square footage.
Useable green roof/ hang out space.
Building[s] programs flexible, multi use space, can expand and contract
Consider natural contours and current circulation patterns in considerations for phased expansion
Take material and design cues from campus and farm for best visual fit.
Smart Lighting/active lighting

Quad 5 Mission Statement: To create a place of learning that is welcoming to community and promotes a natural atmosphere in the built environment, while encouraging sustainability and preserving the history of the farm.
Design the functions to meet the needs of multiple stakeholders.
Utilize all Active Solar and Natural Lighting
Incorporate on the site materials including geothermal and rain water
Used stacked structure to minimize envrionmental impact while responding to site conditions
Create a connection between the exterior and interior by revitalizing and enhancing Demeters Garden
Design a site to connect to existing farm
Clearly establish a welcoming public destination to TESC orgainc farm
Design for minimal waste through reduced use and rcycling
Develop systems for low input maintenace and building operations
