Engineering for Educational Excellence in Rapidly Growing District

Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District is the third largest school district in Texas, and with the region’s rapid population growth, it has a high demand for new schools. Cypress Park is the district’s 11th high school. The three-story structure features a multi-level atrium, a community building for fine arts and indoor athletics, and an auditorium. The building is part of a master-planned, multi-campus educational village site that will also include a middle school and an elementary school.

Our engineers worked to design a remote central plant, water-cooled chillers, gas-fired boilers, chilled and hot water piping, and five electrical services to support the high school, as well as a full sprinkler system with a fire pump and domestic booster pump.

The finished high school can accommodate up to 3,000 students, and it has already relieved overflow from the nearby Cypress Springs and Cypress Lakes high schools—accomplishing the district council’s goal for expansion and retention.
