The new Child Development Center at Grossmont High School includes classroom, infant, toddler rooms and playground designed to meet California child care regulations for 35 children. The facility will centralize the child development program on campus with state-of-the-art facility, equipment and landscape to meet educational goals of the CAL SAFE program. This 5,500-square-foot building exceeds design requirements for CHPS certification. Energy-efficient, sustainable design features include a 25 percent reduction in net energy use, the use of an energy management system, a cool roof that exceeds energy code requirements, abundant daylighting and operable windows. Solar orientation of the roof was optimized for a solar photovoltaic array that is expected to meet 75 percent of annual electricity needs.
