Their challenge

Because of its unique purpose, the high school’s building design and construction involved unique challenges. The focus on vocational training created a need for collaborative meeting areas and lab facilities where students could receive instruction in a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering for the Kirk Lewis High School. In the process of creating these designs, our engineers leveraged their experience in collaborative layout design to support the inclusion of highly versatile learning spaces. Our team also used day lighting, recycling, low-VOC products, and renewable solar and wind energy to meet the school’s power requirements and achieve the district’s goals for energy efficiency and sustainability.
