Schools & Universities Report Health & Productivity Benefits From Green School Efforts, According To New McGraw-Hill Construction SmartMarket Report

The report also includes opinions from the design and construction community, and reports form their clients mirror the results from the schools and universities directly. 85% of architects report a positive impact on health and well-being from their green school projects, and 85% of them are reflecting student mobility and health concerns into the design of their buildings.

The study was produced with the support of the U.S. Green Building Council Center for Green Schools, Lutron, Project Frog and Siemens. Survey and data partners included the Council of Educational Facility Planners International, The American Institute of Architects, Associated General Contractors of America, Green Schools National Network, National Association of Independent Schools, National Building Museum, Society for Colleges and University Planning, and Second Nature.

This report is being released with the opening of the new Green Schools exhibition at the National Building Museum ( www.nbm.org). A press preview of the exhibition is scheduled for Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 10 am to noon at the Museum in Washington, DC.
