Case Study

Denton Independent School District

C.H. Collins Stadium

Located just north of the Dallas Fort Worth “Metroplex” area, Denton Independent School District (ISD) is one of the fastest-growing school districts in North Texas. This explosive growth necessitated the construction of a new 12,000-seat stadium and associated facility—the C.H. Collins Stadium. As a leader in K-12 design, Salas O’Brien was excited to step in to provide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing consulting design for the new facility.

In addition to standard MEP design, Salas O’Brien’s work covered the addition of a scoreboard with a 10’ by 14’ video board; a three-story press box complete with tiered seating, a film deck, and two 20-person multi-use rooms; and a two-story field house with two large locker rooms, district athletic offices, a centralized storage area, and a 150-person meeting room. In the process of the project, Salas O’Brien also helped the stadium to meet specialty lighting and video requirements needed to facilitate televised games and events.

Salas O’Brien’s services proved critical to the success of this important school facility—one that will serve Denton ISD and the entire area for years to come.
