The Allen County Board requested a combination of a
Central Office facility and a Central Storage and Receiving facility. The
resulting 19,000 s.f. facility has a main level for the office area which
contains a central core for staff work area with support staff offices
around that core. Offices for program staff are located on the building
perimeter. The Board Meeting Room is located off the main lobby, keeping
public access separate from the staff areas. Central storage for the school
district, record storage, and building mechanical systems are located in the
below-grade level which is served by a loading dock and grade-level access.
HVAC system is served by geothermal wells, and facility is setup to take
advantage of all current technology systems. The school district primary
servers are all located here, and fiber connections to all district
facilities is maintained.
Allen County Schools are located on one 156 acre campus in Scottsville, KY. Facilities on this site include the Allen County Primary Center, Allen County Intermediate School, Allen County Middle School, Allen County High School, ACHS Fitness Facility, and the Allen County Board of Education. These facilities are all served by geothermal heating and cooling. The owner already has the well field in place for future Vocational Technical School that is currently in design. By using geothermal systems throughout the school system the owner has lowered energy costs and reduced their carbon footprint.
