project at a glance

Richard E. Byrd Middle School consisted of three separate small learning communities totaling 162,000 square feet on a 22-acre site. The structures include three classroom buildings, gymnasium, multi-purpose room, lunch shelter and administration building.

The Byrd Middle School project utilizes a radiant heat panel system with thermal displacement ventilation.  Advantages of this design include quiet classrooms, improved health for occupants, and energy efficient design, and building cost savings.

In addition to energy efficiency, the school has been designed to meet the Collaborative for High Performing Schools (CHPS) criteria for Recycled Content Materials and Low-Emitting Materials. The design of the radiant panel/displaced air system exceeded Title 24 by 25% and contributed to the total CHPS score of 52 points.

Substantial Completion on the project was received 10 weeks ahead of schedule. Additionally, Turner returning to LAUSD over $200,000 in unused contingency and allowances monies as part of the project’s shared savings.
