New girls’ school in Afghanistan is the product of a unique international effort

The Gohar Khatoon Girls’ School is an oasis of learning for girls in this desert city of Afghanistan. The design of the project was part of an international effort and was completed out of Seattle, WA. PAE principal, Allan Montpellier, volunteered consultation services to help improve the energy efficiency and comfort of this project. His expertise lead to the inclusion of sustainable features like natural ventilation and the use of thermal comfort strategies such as thermal mass and operable windows.
