Denver Public Schools operates 154 schools throughout the City and County of Denver and has recognized that buildings present the single-greatest opportunity to improve both energy efficiency and operating costs. Using TREES, the school system will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and set a strong example for eco-conscious, lean-minded educational organizations nationwide.
"Environmental sustainability is a top consideration for our school system," said Mr. Michael Thomas, director of purchasing for the Denver Public Schools. "In today's economy, energy savings leads directly to cost savings."
"The district is very excited about this new partnership with TRIRIGA to manage the complex intersection of facilities, construction, planning and environment," said Trena Deane, executive director of facilities. "Our environmental sustainability project is an exciting new chapter in our long history of improving the quality of life in the communities we serve, and at the same time it helps us manage and reduce the operating expenses of our schools and departments."
