    As part of the SCPS Energy Management and Sustainability programs, SCPS has adopted the U.S Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design sustainability standards for new school construction and major renovations or better known as LEED. 
    LEED, is a certification program for buildings and communities that guide their design, construction, and operations and maintenance toward sustainability.  It’s based on prerequisites and credits that a project meets to achieve a certification level: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. 
    I am extremely proud tonight to announce that Grafton Village Elementary School Renovation Project is the first major SCPS capital project to earn LEED certification.  The GVES Renovation project achieved a “Certified” certification only 3 points shy of Silver certification.  Key accomplishments achieved by the project include:

    • Water use efficiencies/reductions
    • Optimizing energy performance
    • Construction waste management/recycling
    • Improved Indoor Environmental Quality
    • Innovation in design

    Achieving this significant milestone would not have been possible without the support of the School Board and the Board of Supervisor, the superior design from our architect Hord, Coplan and Macht, and the exception construction management from the contractor Loughridge Construction.  However, what made this certification happen was the key leadership provided by our own Principal Mike Sibothan and the superb project management provided by our own Mr. Tom Henry and Mr. James McKeithan.
