On May 7, 2012 Bob McGraw, AIA, LEED AP, President & CEO of Kingscott, presented a check for $21,000 to the Grand Rapids Public Schools’ Board of Education.
As Architects and Engineers for Cesar Chavez Elementary School, Kingscott qualified for the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) tax program. Kingscott’s sustainable design of the building’s envelope and mechanical and lighting systems exceeded code minimum efficiencies by more than 50%. The school district and the community made efficient, economical, and sustainable design a priority, so Kingscott wanted to share this benefit of implementing the energy-saving design with the district. Kingscott previously shared EPAct program funds with Gull Lake Community Schools.
