  • Tarrant County College – Energy Technology Center
    Tarrant County College District’s South Campus Center for Excellence in Energy Technology was envisioned to be an example in sustainability and a state-of-the art learning environment shared with students, faculty, industry partners, and the community. The facility includes existing teaching labs and classrooms for welding, refrigeration and related support areas. The majority of the MEP systems were replaced over one summer, requiring extensive design sequencing, planning/phasing and pre-purchasing long lead equipment. The systems replaced included all air handling units, chilled and heater water piping, medium and low pressure ductwork, VAV boxes, welding hoods, welding exhaust filtration system, and electrical distribution. The project aspires to achieve LEED Platinum to Net Zero level design.
  • Dallas County Community College District – Cedar Valley Vet Tech Building (Lancaster, Texas)
    The Science/Allied Health and Veterinary Technology Center includes 110,000 gsf of science laboratories, lecture halls, healthcare training facilities and spaces necessary to support comprehensive veterinary technology training. It includes a major Outdoor Education Center that supports archaeology, geology and environmental science programs. The facility is Certified LEED-NC Gold
  • Texas A&M University – Central Texas, Warrior Hall (Killeen, Texas)
    TAMU-Central Texas expanded their campus by adding a second building that serves as a Multipurpose, Library, and Science building.  The fourth and top floor of the building boasts three large laboratory teaching classrooms.  It includes a Chemistry Lab, Chemistry Prep Space, two Biology Labs, Biology Prep space, and a Cell Culture Room.  The laboratory includes Siemens air valves on the supply, exhaust, and the fume hoods.  The space has propane gas from a manifold located in the prep space as well as a DI water system serving the laboratories.  The design includes exhausted and recirculating fume hoods as well as an acid neutralization system with acid waste piping serving all drains and sinks in the laboratory areas.
  • Parkland Hospital – Laboratory Project (Dallas, Texas)
    The Parkland Lab Project is part of the large New Parkland Hospital System. The Lab Project is housed on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Logistics Building. The Logistics building is connected to the main Acute Care Hospital (ACH) by a tunnel on the basement level. This 80,000 sqft project will house offices for all laboratory workers on the 2nd floor, along with medical labs for Infectious Disease, Microbiology, Esoteric, Pathology, and others. The building HVAC system will utilize roof-mounted fan-array chilled water units with a dedicated outside air unit serving the laboratory spaces. Lab air control valves and laboratory exhaust fans will be specified on the project to maintain critical pressurization in each of these specific areas, including a BioSafety Level 3 (BSL 3) laboratory. The plumbing system will not only contain hot and cold water, but deionized piping, specialized gases such as CO2, Argon, and Campy (Parkland specific), and an acid waste dilution system.
