We are in the home stretch of our classroom expansion project at ArTech charter school in Northfield. A few days ago the electricians completed mounting the photovoltaic panels on the south wall of the new expansion. These panels are fairly light weight, but pack a big punch for developing electric energy. The school monitors performance of the panels on a regular basis. It looks to me that the position of the photovoltaic panels will also shade some of the south windows during the high summer sun times.
The interior work has moved along nicely. VCT floor tiles have been installed in most of the new areas. One of the classrooms is being used for science teaching so there are cabinets with sinks. All the areas are bright and vibrant. I can imagine children filling the spaces and working on learning. It is fun to work on a project like this. Parts of our work have been viewed by the students and used as learning experiences.
