CMTA’s unique insights helped deliver a school that is an awesome prototype for the future.
Barkley Elementary School
DoDEA's Most Energy Efficient School
This new facility replaces the original B wing of building 499 and provides new administrative space for the Air Force Personnel Center managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Fort Worth District.
CMTA was the engineer of record for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, lighting, communication, audio-visual, and technology design. All systems have been designed to exceed the requirements of the high-performance UFC 1-200-02.
CMTA leveraged our building science leadership approach to help the team find optimization opportunities. The results of this effort found significant structural improvements that strengthened the performance of the envelope while also reducing costs. In addition, the team continued to optimize the design to find additional savings opportunities, allowing the team to design a zero energy facility within the project budget. As a result, this is the first zero energy building on Randolph Air Force Base.
