September 2011: The new green classroom has arrived!

Through the generous efforts and donations of the Tierra Pacifica community, we now have a beatiful brand-new 960-square-foot green classroom. Principal architects Ralph le Roux and Viajy Jayachandran as well as many Tierra Pacifia parents have donated their time and talent to make the $180,000 project a reality. Below is the first half of the classroom being lifted into place by West Coast Cranes who provided their crane services free of charge.

The building is designed to last 50 years as opposed the typical 20 of a portable. It is made of sustainable and energy efficient building materials, and will include skylights and smart lights that automatically adjust according to the light outside. VUMA, a design division of mADi Group in San Jose, is the architect, ZETA Communities is the builder.
