Leander ISD Tom Glenn High School

This $97.5 million project, which opened in August of 2016, included a new 436,000 square foot high school in Leander, Texas. Tom Glenn High School was innovatively designed to foster collaboration amongst the students, as well as the teachers.  Several areas of the school have moveable partitions used to create an open concept floor plan, and workspaces are designed so students can easily work in groups.

  • Packaged DX rooftop units, serving most common areas
