Renewable energy systems in career and technical high school
Crowley, TX, USA
Bill R. Johnson CTE Center
The Crowley Independent School District (CISD) had a pressing need for a Career and Technical High School that could provide vocational training supported by real-world learning labs. The new school serves 1,800 students, and in partnership with Tarrant County College, allows students to earn a high school diploma and an Associate’s degree at the same time.
To help CISD reach its sustainability goals, our team combined the use of geothermal technology, water source heat pumps, and packaged rooftop units to maximize the district’s energy efficiency. This unique facility combines early college and career preparation programs in one facility and features thirteen programs of study, including a cosmetology center with a spa, a fully functional commercial kitchen and restaurant, an automotive shop with four working bays, a television and audio studio, a courtroom, an architectural studio, and biomedical, robotics, aviation, engineering, vet tech, construction technology, logistics, and welding labs.
