The aim was to achieve significant energy savings in the installed equipment and in the lighting system. The building contains mainly classrooms and some administrative offices, although its main use is oriented to education as part of the studies prior to the design of the building, the sunlight was analyzed in facades and the protection alternatives, as a result, the building achieved an important saving in energy consumption.
