Albany Unified School District Board of Education and Superintendent Marla Stephenson hosted Gen7 coming to Albany High School on Friday, June 3.

Four Gen7 green classrooms—the Bay Area’s first—were delivered and installed on the Albany High School campus. City officials, committee members, and community members attended the groundbreaking.

Gen7 is a different kind of green school—a permanent prefab structure that lasts as long as conventional construction at a more affordable price. Gen7 makes it possible for California’s school districts to expand and replace unhealthy, outdated structures with safe, sustainable classrooms that work within a school’s tight budget and timeline. A Gen7 costs less to build, less to operate and less to maintain than a traditional building, paying back as much as 60% a year in energy savings. Over its lifetime, the eco-friendly Gen7 will more than recoup its cost, while educating generations of students in an optimal learning environment.
