Lady Bird Johnson Middle School

Irving, Texas

As the largest net zero school in the U.S., Lady Bird Johnson Middle School produces more energy than it consumes over a 12-month period. Fabral products played a key role in the building’s sustainability and function. Corgan Associates applied more than 72,000 square feet of Fabral metal to the roof, walls, and a system of sun shades and light shelves. The school has been LEED Gold certified by the United States Green Building Council. A large canopy wraps around the building to block the hot Texas sun from passing through classroom windows while still allowing natural lighting. On the building itself, high-efficiency glazing and the increased insulation from the Fabral metal envelope helps the building to stay tightly insulated from outside elements.
