North East ISD Roosevelt High School Addition & Renovation

MEP Engineering, Inc., served as a subconsultant to Garza Bomberger & Associates to complete this challenging renovation which included new art and science labs, athletics gyms, lockers, training room offices, kitchen and cafeteria, auditorium with rehearsal halls for band, choir, dance, career technology labs, library, and administration offices. In order to increase the campus capacity, classroom additions were completed as well.

North East ISD’s original campus, which was constructed in the 1960’s and has since gone through several phases of additions, was much in need of a replacement.  However, the site lacked sufficient space to construct an entirely new campus, while leaving the existing campus intact for daily operations.  The decision was made to create a multi-phase plan for the renovation, making a close investigation of the existing electrical, hydronics, and plumbing utilities necessary, in order to maintain services to the existing campus buildings.

The first building was in construction before bond program funding was obtained to reconstruct the entire campus.  The air conditioning and electrical designs were changed during construction of this first phase to incorporate a master utility plan for reconstruction of the entire campus in stages.

A new central plant, with water-cooled chillers and fire tube boilers,  along with new electrical service for the campus, was built in the next phase. This ultimately utilized three services from the utility company, to form the backbone upon which the campus could be rebuilt in phases.
