  • Collin College Technical Campus
    The new Allen campus accommodates 7100 students. The project includes full site development including coordinating with Civil to bring in new utilities, providing parking lot/landscape lighting, and coordinating storm drainage to feed into a “bio-swell.” The 3-story, 150,000 sf academic building has offices, classrooms, library, kitchen and dining center, nursing, physical therapy, and pharmacy labs. The bottom level (classrooms, science labs, and testing centers) has space for Allen ISD students taking dual credit courses.  Three trades buildings totaling 180,000 sf feature automotive, construction, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, telecom, robotics, welding, foundry, and different fields of maintenance and repair trades plus classrooms, labs, offices, support spaces, and a 170,000 sf garage.
  • Tarrant County College – Center of Excellence for Energy Technology
    Tarrant County College District’s South Campus Center for Excellence in Energy Technology is an example of sustainability and a state-of-the-art learning environment shared by students, faculty, industry partners, and the community. The facility includes 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 achieved LEED Platinum.
  • Texas A&M University – Central Texas | Warrior Hall (Killeen, Texas)
    TAMU-Central Texas expanded its campus by adding a second building - Warrior Hall - that includes a Library and Science building.  The top floor of the building boasts three large laboratory teaching classrooms. The laboratory includes Siemens air valves on the supply, exhaust, and 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.
