PJC was involved in this new school, sponsored by Oprah Winfrey, through the design of the passive and low energy systems, such as use of natural light in classrooms and optimising thermal comfort through natural ventilation. All of which, when optimised through modelling and analysis, combined to make for a comfortable and efficient learning environment.
