OVERBROOK SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND GREENHOUSE

2018 | Philadelphia, PA

The Overbrook School for the Blind M. Christine Murphy Horticulture and Education Center is a 2000 sf net-zero-energy greenhouse and classroom. As the LEED Consultant and Building Enclosure Commissioning Agent, Re:Vision brings a holistic approach to the project. The unique requirements of a greenhouse make enclosure commissioning valuable in reducing water and energy demands. To further offset those loads, a campus solar PV array has earmarked enough production to supply the greenhouse’s annual energy usage. The project is also planning rainwater harvesting to offset the heavy water demand.
