Overview

Rated LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council, the Eco Schoolhouse at Grant Elementary is the most energy efficient school building in Columbia, Missouri. Nick Peckham, then of Peckham & Wright Architects, designed the project as a gift after a classroom trailer was devastated by fire. All materials were produced locally, with the farthest source just outside Jefferson City. The Eco Schoolhouse demonstrates conservation, recycling and environmental awareness. Peckham coordinated donations of time, money and supplies from local engineers, contractors, suppliers and volunteers to complete the schoolhouse, which opened in 2008.
