Katy Independent School District

Taylor High School and Pool Renovation

Named for James Edgar Taylor—a World War II veteran and leader in Texas education—Taylor High School forms a vital part of the Katy Independent School District in southeast Texas. Katy is known for its high caliber academics, programs, and staff, as well as its highly involved community. The district’s drive for excellence also extends to their facilities—so when their main high school needed updating, they turned to Salas O’Brien.

This project involved a complete overhaul of all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in the older areas of the high school. All original conduits, wiring, electric panels, and equipment were removed and replaced, and an additional 17,400 square feet were added to the first and second floors of the facility.

The Salas O’Brien team provided engineering services for these updates as well as for multiple renovations to the school’s pool area. The pool renovation included 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.

This project aptly demonstrates Katy ISD’s commitment to safety and compliance, and with Salas O’Brien’s help, the upgrades resulted in the benefit of significantly increased energy efficiency.
