Their challenge

Our client wanted to construct a new charter high school for the Grant Crossing community to use in conjunction with the adjacent Gary Comer Youth Center. To do so, they needed a partner that could provide excellent engineering design services as well as fundamental LEED commissioning for this project. The new two-story structure would house classroom and office space for the new charter high school.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design as well as low voltage technology and LEED commissioning services for this new 42,000-square-foot charter high school construction. The design’s sustainable features included skylight natural lighting, glass walls between the hallway and classroom, and a sustainable outdoor gateway park.
