Columbus City Schools - Olde Orchard Elementary School


Olde Orchard Elementary School is a, 2-story structure for 550 students pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade. The building has been designated LEED Gold Certification by the USGBC. Sited on 5.3 acres, careful building placement was paramount to utilize slopes to the east side of the site. Taller components of the building are integrated into the slope, thus decreasing exterior wall exposure. The building utilizes geo-thermal heating and cooling with geothermal wells incorporated into parking and playground areas.
