Oakley Elementary School

Oakley Elementary School is a small community concept with flexible learning spaces, and the desire for all classrooms to have daylight and views with an increased building square footage by almost 10% over the District’s prototype. Through the creative use of materials and design that centrally locates infrastructure to keep system costs down, the facility’s budget was less than the District’s typical prototype school. The master planned site allows for pedestrian connectivity to the adjacent community and design compatibility.

Oakley Elementary School followed TX-CHPS designed criteria, including high-performance double-pane super-low e glazing, high-efficiency HVAC and lighting, photocell sensors in main public areas, cool roofing, exterior light pollution reduction, daylighting and views in classrooms, low flow plumbing fixtures and graphics for environmental outreach in education preservation of greenspaces.
