Zwink Elementary was Klein ISD’s first new school to fully implement the Collaborative for High Performance Schools method, a green building rating program especially designed for K-12 schools. The school’s sustainable design aspects include a water harvesting tank, low-flow plumbing fixtures, light shelving units and a cool roof. Klein ISD envisioned this new prototype for sustainable construction as not only an energy-efficient facility, but also as a living teaching venue. Interactive monitors located throughout the school are highly popular — students check Zwink’s use of electric, water and gas utilities against other Klein schools, get information on all sustainable aspects of building and view real-time weather radar.
