+ K-12 EDUCATION We believe all children deserve to have access to high quality educational facilities and comfortable learning spaces where they can thrive. We strive to achieve the greatest energy efficiency possible while delivering systems that meet your district’s standards for maintenance and operation so more of your operating budget can go toward education and less towards utilities. Since the early 1980s, DBR has been working with public school districts in Texas.

Today, our primary focus is educational facilities and we understand the many challenges that face public school districts, including the importance for controlling project budgets and delivering projects on schedule. DBR has the experience to deliver exceptional MEP engineering solutions that best fit your needs.

SPORTS FACILITY

For most, a building works when it’s “behind the scenes” systems do their job quietly in the background without objectionable noise and making occupants uncomfortable. Buildings used for educating our young people need to do better. Educational facilities need to be safe, secure, comfortable, flexible, and maintainable for the long haul. This is what we do. The growth of STEM and magnet schools with a focus on careers indicate school administrators are tuned into workforce needs and are helping students find the best paths to their futures. In these facilities, the building can even be a teaching tool. At DBR, we are proud to be a part of improving the learning environment across the State of Texas and Making Life Better.

+ BUILDING COMMISSIONING DBR launched our Commissioning Division in 2005 by commissioning the first public school in Texas to be LEED Certified. Since then, millions of dollars have been saved by building owners who have experienced shorter startup, schedule adherence, fewer hidden problems, and peak building performance from day one.

Every building is a unique structure with a unique set of requirements for the owner and users. We understand this dynamic of the built environment, take it into account with each project, and provide tailored commissioning plans that cover the spectrum of all building systems requirements.

DBR and VLK Architects teamed up to design Houston ISD’s newest magnet school and the first “energy” school in the nation, paving the way for students to the energy industry. Located in Houston’s Third Ward, Energy Institute High School features a learning courtyard with a collaboration area and outdoor instructional spaces. The design supports a technology-rich campus, and all classrooms are flexible and equipped with smart, interactive monitors. DBR designed the HVAC system to utilize a Variable Refrigerant Flow System to air-condition the school with a Building Automation Controls System. Campus lighting uses occupancy sensors for a cost-effective solution that meets energy code requirements. This facility achieved LEED Silver and was awarded the 2019 Citation of Excellence by Learning by Design Magazine.

Lake Creek High School is designed to serve 900 students in grades 9-11 with plans for expansion as enrollment increases. DBR provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design, as well as construction administration services for the new complex. The campus is designed along a “main street corridor” that connects the media center/library and academic wing to public core components, including fine arts, athletics, and CTE programs. The two-story classroom wings are grouped in a flexible arrangement that supports multi-disciplinary programming, with one-story core areas including an auditorium, two practice gyms, and a competition gym.

The campus replaced facilities that were built in 1965 and prepares students for success beyond high school through a unique program that couples classroom instruction and real-world automotive work experience. The educational spaces have a fluid form and function—walls move, visibility is high, and students choose their workspaces. The aviation program offers flight simulators, mechanical and airframe studies, and maintenance education. It also boasts the country’s first hangar owned by a school district. Visible to the community, the school has a nurturing and inspirational environment that champions education as a vehicle for success.

WALNUT SPRINGS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DRIPPING SPRINGS ISD | CORGAN ASSOCIATES

DBR is working with Corgan on the design replacement of Walnut Springs Elementary School. The HVAC design consists of an energy-efficient geothermal heat pump system coupled with dedicated outside air units (DOAS). Bi-polar ionization is used to purify the indoor air, providing a healthy environment. The design intends to meet the client’s desire for a low Energy Use Intensity (EUI) building that is simple to maintain and fit within the proposed project budget. Our team also designed and specified the communication cabling systems, classroom A/V systems, video surveillance, and access control systems. The new school strikes a balance between a light-hearted setting and a high-performance educational environment and will include a courtyard, library, gym, and cafeteria.
