Linden Grove Middle School
Linden Grove is the second school in Michigan to be certified under the LEED for Schools program. ABD Engineering and Design was retained by TowerPinkster and Kalamazoo Public Schools as acoustical consultants for the project. The school uses state of the art architectural methods throughout and has been the winner of numerous architectural and construction awards.
ABD carefully surveyed the acoustical environment throughout the school to ensure that it met the requirements for the reverberation time, background noise levels, and sound isolation properties of LEED. The school design incorporates many open classrooms, pod learning environments, and laboratory spaces. The LEED for Schools Rating System recognizes the unique, “green” nature of the design and construction of K-12 schools, and is designed to ensure that every student has equal access to learning.
