Case Study

Bryan Independent School District

Arthur L. Davila Middle School

Located in the Brazos Valley region 100 miles northwest of Houston, Texas, Bryan Independent School District (ISD) stands out for its dedication to students. This dedication is expressed in the district motto: “Children First. Always.” Bryan ISD serves over 16,000 students and received 24 Texas Education Agency (TEA) distinctions for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Davila Middle School is one of four Bryan ISD Middle Schools. Built on a 30-acre site in the hills of Bryan, the school serves over 950 students grades 7 to 8. The complex is over 144,000 square feet and has an adjacent track and field and tennis courts. It is named after Arthur L. Davila, the first Hispanic to be elected to the Bryan Board of Trustees. Davila was also recipient of the Hispanic Forum’s Life Achievement Award, and he is regarded as a leader and role model in the Bryan district Hispanic community.

Salas O’Brien has been providing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) consulting design services for Bryan ISD schools since 2006, so when Davila Middle School needed an MEP engineering expert, they turned to us. Our team followed through with excellent designs for systems to support and empower students and faculty as they work, study, and play.
