Project Overview

Students of Lincoln Elementary District #156 now have a new and enhanced playground and will benefit from a number of building renovations. The renovations were completed by Energy Systems Group (ESG), a specialized energy service provider, and will provide the school district with over $52,400 in energy and operational savings annually.

The renovation of the east playground area included improvements to the drainage system, and a new, smooth, play surface which improves drainage and utilization by the district. In addition, the SMARTE fall protection pads installed around the play equipment result in the highest possible fall protection rating commercially available.

Building Improvements

In addition to the new playground, Energy Systems Group has implemented a number of energy efficiency measures. Key facility upgrades provided by ESG’s Chicago-based team include two new heat exchangers for roof top units, lighting occupancy sensors throughout the school district, window and door replacements in the elementary school wing, roof replacement and repair, and new flooring in three classrooms.
