Committee on the Environment

COTE Project Roundtable

Please join new COTE co-chairs Alejandra Menchaca and Michael Grant AIA for a fun, informative dialogue at the inaugural COTE Project Roundtable! Look under the hood of a high-performance project with the project team. Get answers to the questions you’ve always wanted to ask about how highly-sustainable building are designed and constructed. Design and engineering team members from the Perkins-Eastman designed Martin Luther King Elementary School will present this exceptional project for discussion with attendees. The LEED Platinum designed project features

  • 65 geothermal wells that support the heating/cooling system
  • 1,615 photovoltaic panels estimated to provide 47% of the school’s required energy
  • Two 10,000-gallon cisterns for storm water reclamation
  • Interior and exterior light shelves and shading devices that bounce light deep into classrooms while blocking direct heat gain

Food and drinks provided!
