High School Addition Is Top of the Class for Net Zero Buildings

Illinois Green + Chicago Living Future will be hosting a guided tour of the first verified net zero building in the state of Illinois.

ESD Practice Leader for Commissioning and Energy+Eco  Saagar Patel will be joining other members of the project team to present information about the verified net zero addition to Stevenson High School. Patel says the team will be taking visitors on a tour of the facility and will discuss the challenges and lessons learned in designing and operating a net zero building.

Opened for school in 2019, Stevenson’s East Building Addition is a 56,800-square-foot science classroom annex that earned LEED Platinum Certification, Platinum Certification for the Living Architecture Performance Tool, and Net Zero Certification through the International Living Future Institute.

Tickets are available for the Wednesday, July 20 event that will run from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. CT at the Lincolnshire campus.

Saagar Patel freely shares his knowledge, experience, and passion for improving society through events like this.
