SGS Costa Rica Sees Success


Country Day School (CDS), established in 1963, is one of the top bilingual schools in Costa Rica. After decades of operating from sites not appropriate for a first-tier educational institution, CDS upgraded to its current facilities in July 2016. CDS is in San Rafael, Alajuela, where the climate is warm and humid. The facilities have very large windows for natural lighting, causing the classrooms to be hot. As part of their commitment to LEED certification, CDS sought an energy efficient way to reduce the high temperatures in their classrooms.

SuperGreen Solutions approached CDS and offered a program including 3M Sun Control Window Film Prestige 40 as a solution. Ultimately, CDS hired SuperGreen Solutions to install 15,000 sq. ft. of the product.

“Through the excellent guidance of SuperGreen Solutions, we were able to assure proper comfort of students, teachers and employees while avoiding the use of air conditioning. This saves us relevant costs in energy, maintains the desired comfort within our learning spaces, helps us maintain our commitment for a better environment and protection of the planet, while reinforcing these values to our students,” said Mr. Patrick Brown, President of CDS.


“This is an excellent example of the problem-solving skills, delivered daily, from SuperGreen Solutions franchisees around our ‘becoming-greener-every-day’ world.  We are product agnostic and consultative in approach.  We are free from needing to sell a specific solution.  We review the problem and design the right solution…always tied to ROI.  We love our work, as we make things better every day,” says David Goodman, President, SuperGreen Solutions.
