Burton Elementary

Location: Porterville, CA

Project Type: K-12

This project which was an adaptation of a prototype originally constructed in Nevada. Adapting the design for California, the design team addressed higher seismic requirements and sought to meet energy efficiency criteria established by the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS). CHPS Criteria addresses material selection, energy and water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and innovation. These criteria were interwoven into this project’s four concrete tilt-up buildings – two 2-story buildings and two 1-story buildings. [With John A. Martin & Associates]
