Windemere's Master Facility Plan
The new Windemere CLC is 55,000-sq.-ft. facility and one of the first Akron schools to be designed for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. The school's "green" features include the use of daylighting, with sun shades on the large high-performance windows on the south and west sides. Windows can be opened, interior blinds are featured, a sloped ceiling allows more light on the inside and light fixtures total a low-energy 26 watts. The roof is rated R-30, and the construction waste had a 90% recycle rate. The dining room uses diffusers for managing sound, and some rooms have rubber floors. Carpeting is recyclable. A picturesque water catchment area in the middle of the parking lot serves as a bioswale, which removes silt and pollution from surface runoff. Water from the runoff is kept onsite, part of the parking lot uses permeable pavers and white concrete saves money while reflecting heat. Under the parking lot are two 80-well geothermal fields, and the back of the property is a wildflower field.

Architects
All designs are the work of an architectural firm from one of six firms, which comprise the Akron Architectural Group. AAG architects work with Akron Public Schools architects on each site. The architectural firm designing the Windemere Community Learning Center was Braun & Steidl Architects Inc. (John Wheeler, project architect). Gerry Taylor was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
