Oakwood School District Partners with Ameresco on Facility Addition
Oakwood School District broke ground on the future Oakwood Junior High facility, to provide enhanced learning and working environment for students and staff.
FRAMINGHAM, M.A. and OAKWOOD, IL. – December 2, 2021 – Ameresco, Inc., (NYSE:AMRC), a leading cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, today announced their partnership with Oakwood School District to construct an addition on the Oakwood Grade School building.
Oakwood School District selected Ameresco to address the needs of their aging facilities and construct the build-out to provide an enhanced learning environment for staff and students.
Upon project completion, all Oakwood Junior High students and staff will move to the new wing, added to the Oakwood Grade School building, where more technology and resources will be available to them. The existing Junior High building will be closed (except for the use of the gym as necessary), allowing the existing, aged building systems to be shut down, which provides the district energy savings through the use of new, more efficient building systems in the new wing.
Superintendent Larry Maynard stated that “Through the use of our ESSER Funds we have begun the process of consolidating the junior high with our grade school as a means to enhance the educational opportunities and resources for student growth.”
“We commend Oakwood School District for taking steps to improve the working and learning environment for their staff and students,” said Lou Maltezos, EVP at Ameresco. “We are proud to be their implementation partner for these infrastructure upgrades.”
Groundbreaking on the project took place yesterday, with participation from the Oakwood School District Superintendent and the Board of Education. The project is expected to be complete in Summer 2022.
