Lytle ISD Junior High School Addition

This project involved additions to the existing Lytle High School campus to create a conjoined junior high school, including a two-story classroom addition, administrative addition, library additions, PE gymnasium/locker rooms, and agricultural-ed barn/shop facilities.  The project was designed and phased to enable the existing high school facilities to remain in operation throughout the school year, while construction of the building addition was being performed.

For this project, MEP Engineering, Inc. utilized Autodesk Revit MEP, a leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software package, to design and coordinate all aspects of the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems with other design disciplines.

HVAC systems included a combination of packaged rooftop units with gas heat, and energy recovery units with total energy heat wheels.  The classroom addition includes science labs with fume hood and general lab exhaust systems, while the ag barn/shop included a welding exhaust system.  Plumbing systems include acid waste systems and gas/water/electric shutoffs for science laboratories.  Two new electrical distribution panelboards feed power to all additions from the existing campus main switchboard.  Lighting scope included a classroom lighting control system.
