The Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi has occupied the Raleigh site since 1983. The campus sits on 30 acres and includes educational as well as religious facilities. The parish consists of 5,000 families and employs 140 people. School enrollment includes 680 students from kindergarten through eighth grade and another 200 preschoolers. During the construction project, more than 20% of all materials used in the buildings came from sources within 500 miles of the campus. A key element in the buildings achieving LEED Gold certification is their superior performance in the area of energy efficiency. Each of the new buildings is designed to use at least 51% less energy than a comparable building. The new buildings’ HVAC system, which was installed and maintained by Piedmont Service Group makes use of outside air recirculation, humidity control and zoning that can be controlled centrally from a laptop computer.
