Generous daylighting, which has been proven to increase student test scores and teacher retention rates, is achieved through the expansive clerestory windows and glass doors. Numerous design features such as sun shades, integrated rainwater collection, photovoltaic roof panels, LED lighting coupled with lighting controls, efficient heating and cooling systems, and eco-friendly materials make Sprout Space an excellent example of passive and active green building strategies. These strategies help it operate as a net-zero energy building with the eventual goal to provide an energy independent classroom.
