Creekside Community High School – TTSD Bond Program
Tigard-Tualatin School District’s new Creekside Community High School addition (formerly the Durham Education Center) offers a central commons and cafeteria with a kitchen accessible to instructional programs, a new centralized main office with breakout rooms for collaboration between students and staff, outdoor recreation space, science classroom, and maker space to enhance the STEM program. One of the most unique aspects of the building’s design is that it has been developed to be one of the first fully Net Zero K-12 education buildings in the state.
The projected surplus in annual energy savings, $13,000, is anticipated to offset the use of the existing buildings onsite. Students will have an opportunity to learn from the building as a teaching tool and participate in maximizing the building’s performance with access to metrics through an “energy dashboard” and weather station in the school’s commons.
