Green High <ul><li>“ Educating the future generation and ensuring they have a good future to live in” </li></ul><ul><li>The school of the FUTURE… </li></ul>
<ul><li>RULES </li></ul><ul><li>To keep the school green; </li></ul><ul><li>Prosecutions for littering - £2 fine and 1 hr community service at the school. </li></ul><ul><li>Each student has a power card, limiting their use of electricity. This is only when the electricity is used for personal leisure (e.g. computers in spare time) </li></ul><ul><li>No vandalism of any school property – especially green energy producing items (e.g. solar panels). £50 fine and parents meeting. </li></ul><ul><li>NO wasting electricity. </li></ul><ul><li>Switch lights off if you are last to leave the room. </li></ul>
Look at the Main Building: Living roof Entrance Flower beds Solar panels Big windows for natural lighting. Concrete on south wall
The upper floor will be entirely glass; windows with miniature solar panels among them. The building consists of 40 classrooms; two floors of 20, a reception area and office, a waiting room, staff room, library and store rooms. As we enter through automatic doors, there are swipe card scanners which pupils will swipe for attendance. These will also be at the entrance of each class. Classes are 7m x 7m with a 3m corridor behind, looking out onto a closed garden with an open roof. The walls of the green space are completely glass; the design is to bring natural light into the building which is healthier for the eyes. In the centre of the private grounds is an underground tunnel 30m long leading behind the main building to the specialist’s blocks. Our School consists of…
Our green eco-friendly kitchens and toilets This is a picture of our kitchen… We aim to use the least amount of water possible through sensor taps… The filtered water from the kitchen goes into the toilets and is used to flush them, thus reducing our Carbon Footprint… We also use 95% recycled worktops.. Sensor taps Plants Electric cookers Eco friendly material Electric fridge-freezer Kitchen garden LED Lights This will reduce our carbon footprint by at least 12.75lbs CO2 per year.
Drama Theatre <ul><li>This is the bird’s eye view (from above) of the Drama Theatre. </li></ul><ul><li>As you can see, there is a Cupboard to store Props and Costumes. </li></ul><ul><li>The Stage for performing work. </li></ul><ul><li>The Solar Panels for heat, and because our Drama Theatre is black, we don’t need light. We have them on the south side because the Sun is strongest there. </li></ul><ul><li>The Fire Exit is in case of fire, hence the name, for a quick exit/escape. </li></ul><ul><li>The Door obviously is for entering and exiting. </li></ul><ul><li>And lastly, the Chairs are for sitting, and watching from. </li></ul>
Electrical expenditure Aim: To design a school which consumed less non-renewable energy. Method: a) Decreasing the total energy expenditure of the school. b) Increasing the percentage of energy generated through renewable means. <ul><li>Main concerns: </li></ul><ul><li>Classrooms </li></ul><ul><li>IT rooms </li></ul><ul><li>DT rooms </li></ul>

The eco-friendly features of the building shall be: <ul><li>Rotating solar panels to make energy from the sun all through the light day... </li></ul><ul><li>Under-floor heating to use less energy </li></ul><ul><li>Motion sensors within the building to save energy </li></ul><ul><li>Gym Partially powered by exercise bikes and other manual equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>Shower water, used to flush the toilets. </li></ul><ul><li>Grass pitch instead of astro turf </li></ul><ul><li>Large windows to catch more natural light. </li></ul>
Garden design <ul><li>We have put together a eco-friendly garden for the school. These are a few of our many ideas: </li></ul><ul><li>A dining area for people with packed lunches to enjoy themselves and for them to relax </li></ul><ul><li>A vegetable patch for different vegetables to grow and we can use the vegetable peels for compost </li></ul><ul><li>And, a variety of different plants and trees to reduce the carbon footprint and they are nice to look at and create shade </li></ul>
ENERGY EFFICIENT ICT SUITE Skylights, to provide natural lighting Eco-quiet computers use 2/3rds less energy Carpet for insulation Straight blinds to block out light Recycled timber wood Mechanical windows Solar panels South wall made of concrete How we are saving energy..
What is a living roof??? why we are using it…?? <ul><li>It will absorb water and is eco-friendly as the photosynthesis process will take Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ) out of the atmosphere and replace it with Oxygen (O). </li></ul>A living roof is a roof cover with growing grass and plants in order to provide sustainability. It will improve the energy performance of the building, air quality and urban ecology.
How we make a living roof <ul><li>Firstly, you put a layer of polythene sheet, this will stop leakage into the building. </li></ul><ul><li>then you put a layer of sheep’s wool, this will absorb water and insulate the house. </li></ul><ul><li>after that you put a drainage layer. This has a series of dips that the water will collect in. </li></ul><ul><li>Then put a filter sheet to hold the rocks in place. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, put various rocks in to hold and retain an equal amount of water. </li></ul>
