Creekside Community High School Bond Program Tigard, Oregon

A school bond program for Tigard-Tualatin School District created the opportunity to make improvement to it’s facilities, including a new addition to Creekside Community High School. A projected surplus in annual energy savings of $13,000 is anticipated to offset the expanded use of the existing buildings onsite.

Leveraging a School Bond for a Unique, Net Zero K-12 Building

Formerly the Durham Education Center, the updates offer 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. 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.
