Renovating for Increased Energy Efficiency at a Texas High School

Constructed in 1979, Katy Independent School District’s Taylor High School facility needed significant upgrades to continue meeting its school’s needs. At the same time, the district leadership wanted to increase the school’s energy efficiency. This project involved a complete overhaul of all MEP systems in the older areas of the high school as well as multiple renovations to the school’s pool.

We provided engineering services covering the removal and replacement of all original conduits, wiring, electric panels, and equipment. Our work also included MEP for a 17,400-square-foot addition to the first and second floors of the facility. The pool renovation involved the installation of new wiring, devices, and pathways, new lighting in the main pool room and supporting areas, and the replacement of the natatorium ventilation system and overall HVAC.
