Energy Water & Sustainability – Austin ISD

Jaime D. Padron Elementary School is located  on the north side of Austin.  By reusing and repurposing an former warehouse, through the use of skylights in corridors and stairwells, the design team transformed a former dark, bleak building into a light-filled, colorful 57-classroom school.

Studio D provided sustainability services for Padron Elementary School acting as the prime consultant for the Austin Energy Green Building rating system and as the sustainability consultant for the contractor on both rating systems.  Padron Elementary School achieved dual certification by achieving a 4-Star Rating from the Austin Energy Green Building program as well as a LEED Gold Rating utilizing the LEED for Schools Rating System.
