The Timberland Middle School was designed and built with conservation, education, and safety in mind. The school saves energy in its day-to-day operation thanks to multi-discipline conservation strategies. Students will be able to monitor the output of the PV solar array through an interactive kiosk. Also on the roof with the PV array, is a weather-monitoring station, allowing students to track wind speed and direction. As part of the Oregon Resiliency Plan, the school is designed to stay standing in the event of a major earthquake and to provide shelter and emergency power afterward. The building is reinforced using steel x-braces for added strength.
