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 & science labs, athletics gyms, lockers, training room, and offices, kitchen/cafeteria, auditorium with rehearsal halls for band, choir, and dance, career technology labs, library, and administration; classroom additions were completed as well ton increase the campus capacity.

NEISD’s original campus, constructed in the 1960’s and added to in several phases since then, was much in need of replacement.  However, there was no room to build an entire new campus on the site, while leaving the existing campus intact.  Reconstruction in phases was thus chosen which meant that close investigation of the existing electrical, hydronics and plumbing utilities was needed to determine a plan for maintaining services to the existing campus buildings to remain for a time, while replacing the buildings in multiple phases.

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, was built in the next phase, along with new electrical service for the campus, ultimately utilizing three services from the utility company, to form the backbone upon which the campus could be rebuilt in phases.
