Sit­u­ated on the west­ern side of the town of Green­wich on nearly 20 acres, Glenville Ele­men­tary School was opened in 1975 and mod­ern­ized in 1989. The school ren­o­va­tion pro­vides a tech­no­log­i­cally advanced and energy effi­cient learn­ing envi­ron­ment while the diver­sity of Glenville School sup­ports an envi­ron­ment that makes it a place to learn about people and dif­fer­ences.

The ren­o­vated school houses 360 stu­dents in grades K-5 in 20 class­rooms. The pro­gram space also includes gym, cafe­te­ria, and library/​media center housed around a cen­tral court­yard. The cen­tral loca­tion of the court­yard and public spaces allows for opti­mum acoustics and min­i­mal dis­trac­tion in each class­room.

The Glenville Ele­men­tary School ren­o­va­tion included approx­i­mately 100,000 square feet of updated space both inte­rior and exte­rior. Selux Saturn 1 pole and wall mount lumi­nar­ies were chosen for their supe­rior light­ing for the school’s grounds, while also com­ple­ment­ing the updated over­all look of the school. Corral bol­lards were used in the court­yard to pro­vide light that is prac­ti­cal with­out being over­bear­ing in a small space.

  • The Saturn family combines historical and contemporary flair and is available in six different post top luminaire variations and a bollard. Saturn was designed for reliable and economical operation, constructed from highly durable materials for maximum service life.
  • Corral® by Selux is a diffuse family of luminaires consisting of columns and bollards. The protective Corral® rings around the diffuse polycarbonate shielding add a decorative feature, and can be selected in a variety of lit section heights. For columns, choose from a straight or tapered pole with an overall height up to 16 feet.
