WWCS North and South Campus Buildings Are ‘Gold’


Winton Woods City Schools is starting the 2022 year off right. In January, the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) announced Winton Woods City Schools’ North and South Campuses, as one of the nine Ohio schools, to achieve the LEED Green Building Certification and two of three schools to receive the gold status. "Our new school campuses earning the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED - Gold designation means a lot to our schools, staff, students and families,” said Executive Director of Business Affairs Steve Denny. “It also says a great deal about our community and their values as well. Over the years, the communities we serve have consistently placed a high degree of importance on green environmentally-friendly design, construction and operations and voiced this clearly during the community engagement and design process. Being energy-efficient, clean and environmentally conscious not only helps preserve our ecosystems and our future but also helps maximize valuable public funds." 


Schools are rated based on design and construction practices including daylighting, classroom acoustics, indoor air quality, sustainable building materials and energy efficiency. The OFCC Executive Director Cheryl J. Lyman said well-designed schools are proven to have an impact on student achievement, as well as health indicators among both students and staff. “Achieving this gold-level designation was a true team effort and would not have been possible without the sustained efforts of the design team from SHP, our commissioning agent Motz Engineering and our construction partners Megen Construction and Skanska Construction," said Mr. Denny.
