ADG has worked with administrators, the Casady School Board and the school’s building committee to produce a master plan for continued campus growth.
The first phase of the master plan to be implemented is Casady’s new math building. The building was certified as the first K-12 school in Oklahoma to achieve Silver LEED 2.0 for Schools in Spring 2011.
ADG led an experienced team of engineers and consultants to design the facility to meet the stringent LEED for Schools 2.0 standards. The contractor was responsible for documenting the materials and waste management throughout the building process. The LEED 2.0 for Schools standards include strict energy use guidelines, sound-dampening requirements, natural daylighting as well as incorporating a variety of sustainable strategies and materials.
The building boasts the newest, most innovative features to support Casady’s rigorous math curriculum, including ample classroom space for every course offered, interactive white boards, internet access and the latest technology in every classroom. Casady has set an example of its commitment to building a healthy environment for students, faculty and the larger community.
The building is situated in the southwest corner of campus next to the library. Taking its stylistic cues from other buildings on campus, it has a red brick exterior and a peaked roofline. It boasts ample classroom space for every course offered the latest instructional technology to support Casady School’s rigorous math curriculum: SMART Board interactive white boards, computers and Internet access.
The 8,900-square-foot building, which opened to students in October 2010, completed the lengthy submittal and review process necessary to reach certification with the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) in summer 2011.
