Salida Headstart


This project was Salida’s first LEED certified project.  The unique design utilizes south facing windows for optimal daylight collection and passive solar heat.  Other “Green” amenities include extra insulation and environmentally friendly building products.  The project was funded by various grants and fundraising events.  The Salida School District is ecstatic with the functional efficiency and low operating cost of this building.
