PROJECT DETAILS

Kentucky’s Next Net Zero Energy School

Jennings Creek Elementary is the latest new elementary school facility in the Warren County School District.  Following the energy reducing design strategies implemented throughout the district, Jennings Creek Elementary includes a site-produced alternative renewable energy source (solar) to achieve net zero energy status.

Located within a campus shared with the existing Henry Moss Middle School, Jennings Creek Elementary will encourage Integrated Learning, between the two facilities and promote a P-8 campus. While the buildings are separate, an outdoor pathway and supervised corridor, enable staff and students to utilize the Cafetorium with a stage, Cluster/Group Study Areas, and the Monumental Learning/Collaboration Stair. During night time productions, the classroom wings are able to be secured while allowing use of the Collaboration Areas.

Housed within the Media Center are “Maker Spaces” that encourage student group meetings and promote collaborative thinking. At the Center of the Media Center is a Media Hub, allowing students to utilize computer workstations within the supervised environment of the Media Center.

Green kitchen strategies eliminate deep fryers and tilting skillets to reduce energy, also supporting the district-wide initiative to provide healthier lunches for the students.

Jennings Creek Elementary is designed to operate at less than 20 EUI/SF/YR creating an average savings of over $165,000 a year in energy costs.

The Louisville Metro Housing Authority and the City of Louisville will break ground Friday, March 29, on Phase I of the Beecher Terrace Revitalization. Phase I includes a single, four-story building with 117 units designed specifically for seniors.

As part of a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Implementation Grant, the new Beecher Terrace will be transformed into a sustainable, walkable, and amenity-rich community. When complete it will offer over 600 units of affordable housing. The buildings reflect the character of nearby neighborhoods while maintaining their heritage and identity.

The entire redevelopment is pursuing U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and USGBC Kentucky LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) and Enterprise Green Community certification.

Sherman Carter Barnhart has worked with the Louisville Metro Housing Authority for over 25 years, and we are proud to be a partner with McCormack Baron Companies on the Beecher Terrace Revitalization.
