Finn Hill Jr. High School, Kirkland WA

It’s been a year since students hit the halls at the new Finn Hill Jr. High School…one of the district’s leader in energy efficiency, sustainability, and progressive learning environments.  Designed by Mahlum Architects, the 115,000 sq. ft. school used Premier SIPs for the walls and roof to ready their energy reduction goals.  We wrote about this project last year before the grand opening ceremonies.  With extensive daylighting and an innovative HVAC system, the school is 47 percent more efficient than the ENERGY STAR median and is considered zero energy ready.  Finn Hill Jr. High School currently receives roughly 40 percent of its power from rooftop photovoltaics.
