Energy cost at US K-12 schools represents the largest single operating expense after salaries and benefits. Developing a plan to help rein in those costs is important to a school’s bottom line and helps to ensure a more sustainable future. Buro Happold, through our G.Works collaboration, partnered with HR&A to provide a full infrastructure, energy and economic analysis for both the Hill and River campuses of Riverdale Country Schools (RCS) located in the Bronx, New York. The result is an energy action plan with strong economic analysis as a foundation for RCS’s infrastructure investments.
