Redding School of the Arts, Redding, Calif., is a charter school for students who
have an interest in visual and performing arts. The school was designed to create
opportunities to show students, teachers and parents the importance of sustainability
while inspiring students in creative, colorful surroundings.
The school's roof is protected by 520 squares of Louisville, Ky.-based Metal Sales
Manufacturing Corp.'s Magna-Loc pencil-ribbed standing-seam metal panels installed
by Kodiak Roofing and Waterproofing Co., Lincoln, Calif. Many panels have attached
rigid photovoltaic (PV) panels. An additional 12 squares of Magna-Loc flat-pan metal
panels were installed on a nearby utility building and act as a roof surface for
PV laminate solar panels.
Completed in August 2011, Redding School of the Arts is the first new school campus
to receive Platinum certification under the LEED® for Schools 2009 standards and
is expected to achieve net-zero energy consumption.
