Renovating Buildings, Images

Web Abstract: 
A four-year facility retrofit program revamps Charleston, South Carolina's schools. The projects addressed critical issues, including inefficient HVAC systems, leaking roofs, and inadequate life-safety systems. To date, 97 percent of the district's 78 schools have received improvements in various areas, including lighting, windows, air filtration, air-handling systems, security, and communications technology. While the project's goal was to create healthier and more conducive learning environments for students, it also sparked admiration for the district's maintenance department.
