DC Public Schools John Lewis Elementary
The First Zero Energy, WELL Certified School
CMTA has been engineering K-12 facilities for more than 50 years and we understand how buildings affect student performance, health, and wellness. By helping to create resilient learning environments through improved indoor air quality, temperature, natural daylighting, and reducing energy consumption we make a real difference in student, staff and community success. We create energy efficient projects that promote wellness and still reduce operating costs. Our portfolio includes the best performing elementary, middle and high schools in the United States.
In addition to design, our leaders serve on technical and standards committees and regularly contribute to the development of the industry guidance and national high performance building standards. In fact, we helped author ASHRAE’s “Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings – Achieving Zero Energy.” Three out of six schools featured in the guide were designed by CMTA.
