Fairmont Elementary School

Back to Projects

The Fairmont Elementary School is designated as the first LEED Silver school in Solano County.

This two-story all-in-one building is 53,000 SF, including 27 classrooms, multi-purpose room, library, computer lab, office and other spaces.

This project uses a displacement ventilation and variable power air conditioning system. This ventilation system provides conditioned air into a room near the floor rather than near the ceiling. The classrooms were specially designed with acoustic seals, absorptive materials and doors to reduce noise transmission to classrooms. Each classroom includes networked computers, digital projectors, touch-screens, interactive white boards, document cameras and more. The multi-purpose room is complete with a black box stage and rear-projection screen used for assemblies and presentations

An interactive touch-screen display, located in the main foyer, tracks energy usage as well as output of the wind turbine and solar panels affixed to the shade structure located next to the play fields. The project also includes bio-swales for filtering storm drainage runoff and drought-resistant landscaping that requires less water.
