Pendleton School District: Pendleton Early Learning Center

In order to make room for all-day kindergarten, Pendleton School District in Pendleton, Oregon chose to consolidate kindergarten and Head Start throughout the district into the existing and vacant Hawthorne Elementary School. A new wing was added and the existing building was completely gutted and rebuilt. All new heating and cooling systems were provided as well. The 50,523sf school was modeled after the Center for Children and Families which has been very successful in the Gladstone School District.

Scope: Design through Warranty Phase commissioning services were performed for the Pendleton School District to fulfill the requirements of Oregon Senate Bill 1149 and Energy Trust of Oregon Cx Design Review Credit and Functional Testing Credits. Commissioning included Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system, Dedicated Outside Air System (DOAS), emergency power generator and distribution, and other HVAC equipment and controls. The building featured energy-efficient lighting, various energy upgrades and solar arrays.
