Building Schools in NH: Getting to Integrated Design and High Performance.

Web Abstract: 
Reports on research conducted to understand how schools are currently planned, designed, built, and operated in New Hampshire, and to identify action intervention points at the local, state and/or regional level that would result in high performance schools being realized in New Hampshire. The major obstacles described include voter willingness to build schools at minimal cost that will ultimately cost more to maintain and operate, and systemic barriers at the state level that include lack of experience with high performance design and focus on maximum square footage rather than quality design and construction. Means of overcoming these obstacles and meeting the needs are detailed, as is a primer on three project delivery systems.
