Southwest ISD Legacy High School Performing Arts Center

This 750 seat performing arts center is part of the new $55 million Southwest ISD Legacy High School, located in southwest San Antonio, Texas.  The performing arts space was designed by Pfluger Architects, who contracted MEP Engineering, Inc. to design:

  • Chilled water AHUs
  • Electric Strip heating systems
  • Gas hydronic systems
  • Plumbing systems including: domestic hot water, domestic cold water, and sanitary waste/vent piping
  • Energy efficient LED lighting system throughout

As with any performing arts space, special emphasis was placed on designing systems with low ambient noise levels. MEP worked directly with the project’s acoustical consultant in order to develop systems which best fit this purpose. Southwest ISD occupied the building in 2018.
