Safe and Comfortable Learning Environments to Inspire Our Teachers and Children
American school facilities are aging, inefficient, and underfunded. As a result, school systems have reached a tipping point. The average U.S. K-12 building is 40-years old and has outdated equipment, control systems, and lighting fixtures that are either inefficient or failing. According to the U.S. General Accounting Office, more than a quarter of American students attend school in buildings below standard or even dangerous. Nearly two-thirds of schools have air conditioning or lighting that needs repair or replacing.
School utility costs have soared due to inefficient energy usage and rising costs. These often stem from fundamental design issues or flawed equipment implementation. They can also come from poor operating control systems, such as economizers that don’t work properly or the inability to schedule building system occurrences effectively. In other cases, the new systems were not commissioned properly.
At the same time, school systems face tighter budgets and dwindling resources which delays fixing issues or maintaining equipment properly. Deferred maintenance eventually leads to building systems becoming inefficient or inoperable.
Veregy can help. We know how important a good learning environment is for children. Without proper temperature and humidity control and ideal lighting, students’ classroom work suffers.
Thankfully, the very inefficiencies plaguing American schools can pay for much-needed improvements. The savings achieved by replacing inefficient systems and infrastructure can pay for themselves through an Energy Savings Performance Contract.
We’ve designed hundreds of state-of-the-art educational facilities solutions using the latest sustainable design, technology, and behavior modification. Veregy has a proven track record of success across the country.
