Vermont school builds net-zero field house
If ever there was a compelling reason for a school to build sustainably, it’s the one faced by Vermont’s Putney School not long ago. Namely, warmer winters resulting from global climate change had reduced the cold-weather sports opportunities the private boarding school traditionally relied on, leaving it with a sudden need for gym space for the first time. Its solution? A net-zero field house that’s on track to be one of only five platinum LEED-certified school buildings in the nation.
