State School YYY-1 is a new, state of the art high school scheduled to open in the fall of 2009.  The facility will accommodate 1864 student stations in a total of 180,000 square feet.  The school is sited on 17 acres located inside Kendall Indian Hammocks Park in Miami.  The facilities include a 3-story classroom building, administration/media building, 2-story science wing, cafetorium, art and music suite and a gymnasium. 

The school is designed as a sustainable green building, and is expected to be Miami-Dade County Public Schools first “US Green Building Council’s” LEED certified school.  The project's green building elements will be integrated in the instructional curriculum of the school.

HVAC System

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), a result of sufficient fresh air ventilation is an important factor in the LEED certification process.  State School YYY-1 is using RenewAire ERVs to efficiently ventilate classroom space and reduce harmful concentration of indoor pollutants, an absolute must for the high-load, high-density environment of South Florida High Schools.  Due to their energy efficiency, water use reduction and use of ozone friendly HFC-134a refrigerant, two 300 Ton Trane Fourth generation Series R Chillers are being installed providing a path to LEED Building Certification.
