For Immediate Release:
(SAVANNAH, Ga.) – Trident Sustainability Group announces a new LEED certification
– Stephen’s County High School in Toccoa, GA..

The Stephen’s County High School achieved LEED certification from the US Green
Building Council, and is the Stephen’s County Board of Education’s first LEED certified
project, as well as the first public school in the region to achieve LEED certification and
at over 400,000 sf, one of the largest LEED for Schools certified projects in the state.
Trident Sustainability Group served as the LEED consultant for the project.

The new $35 million facility provides a sustainable learning environment for thousands
of high school students and also features a 2,000 seat sports arena and 1000 seat
performing arts center. Numerous sustainable features were included such as a high
efficiency, variable volume HVAC system, low flow plumbing fixtures, super efficient
lighting tied to occupancy sensors, and low emitting finishes that were used throughout.

"Green schools should be a no-brainer. Students are in a better learning environment and
tend to have better test scores, and ongoing operation costs are much lower", said Tommy
Linstroth, Principal of Trident Sustainability Group. "Achieving LEED certification was
on one of the largest LEED for Schools project in the state shows the Stephen’s County
Board of Education’s commitment to providing the best learning environment for their
students
