Tyngsborough Junior/Senior High School

Tyngsborough, MA

When this high school was designed, the owner’s mandate was that there be “nothing fancy.” The result was a high performance building long before it was fashionable.

  • Students 650
  • Grades 7-12
  • Size 110,000 ft2

Designed for 650 students in grades 7-12, the building features room sensors that turn off lights in empty classrooms and turn them on again when the room is occupied. An ice storage system allows the facility to make use of off-peak electric rates to air condition interior portions of the school.

The school’s 360 KW emergency generator will actually generate enough excess capacity to sell power back to the utility company during peak demand times as well.
