Worthing High School
Worthing High School is located within the Houston Independent School District (HISD). The school’s new one-story building is approximately 92,500 square feet in size and achieved LEED Certified Status. This school achieved several notable distinctions in its design and construction. Notably, the school was able to divert approximately 88 percent of its construction waste from the landfill. Additionally, the building was constructed of over 20 percent recycled materials (by cost), 30 percent regional materials (by cost) and over 90 percent of the installed new wood was FSC certified (also by cost). Finally, the school strived to limit the use of low-emitting materials in both the construction and post-construction phases.
