Children of U.S. service members and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) employees started the school year at a new LEED Silver certified campus near Stuttgart, Germany, thanks to Thornton Tomasetti’s Sustainability practice. The Boeblingen Elementary and High School is one of the first DoD schools in Europe to be LEED certified. We worked in close collaboration with climate engineering firm Transsolar and architect Gaus/Aldinger on the 290,000-square-foot building to create an energy and water-efficient, well daylit space that’s designed to promote student health and learning. The new facility consumes 40 percent less energy than a baseline building. Our client was Staatliches Hochbauamt Reutlingen (the Reutlingen State Building Office).
The new campus accommodates approximately 650 high school and 610 elementary students, relieving overcrowding in other schools in the Stuttgart military community. Photo by Roland Halbe Fotografie
