From specialized ventilation requirements, indoor natatorium humidity control, variable occupancies, energy conservation, lighting controls and life-safety requirements, our team has the expertise required to meet the mechanical, electrical and plumbing needs of K-12 facilities. Our team can also assist with any HVAC testing or MEP commissioning needs in new or existing K-12 facilities. 

Through our experience in the K-12  industry, we realize the need for quick timelines that do not interfere with the students, administrative, or teachers’ schedules, and activities. With unmatched thoroughness, and continuous reliability, our team efficiently delivers and optimum operating facility within the specified time frame.

Memorial High School - FriscoMemorial High School – Frisco ISD

EAB was honored to partner with Frisco ISD during the construction of Memorial High School. This 387,000 square foot high school contains classrooms, athletic facilities, computer rooms, fine arts rooms, a library, a gymnasium, a cafeteria, and an auditorium. 

Over the course of eight months, EAB performed the testing and balancing of the HVAC systems; and facilitated the building commissioning process for the HVAC and lighting controls. We reviewed the start-up documentation, developed and performed the system verification checklist. We also performed point and sensor calibration verification of all BAS points and sensors from the field to the operator’s graphical interface. Our commissioning team developed and performed the Functional Performance Testing procedures for the HVAC and lighting systems. 

With passionate integrity, EAB has been Frisco ISD’s preferred Testing and Balancing partner for over a decade. By committing to our core values and delivering an optimum operating Memorial High School, EAB became Frisco ISD’s preferred partner for Building Commissioning.

Bridgeland HSBridgeland High School – Cypress-Fairbanks ISD

Cypress-Fairbanks ISD engaged EAB to provide Testing and Balancing services to their 12th and newest high school in Cypress, Texas. The construction of Bridgeland High School was a $120 million project, featuring a four-story academic tower.  

Our team provided Testing and Balancing of air and water systems, control point and sensor calibration verification and control sequence verification within a 10-month time frame.  

The third and fourth floors of the academic tower feature a large library surrounded by glass windows. During construction, the project team identified temperature problems that were occurring in this area even after our initial balancing of the terminal units. Our team was engaged to investigate and discovered two problems that previously went unnoticed by the project team. The windows were not properly sealed which compromised the building envelope. In addition, the chilled water system was not correctly adjusted by the contractor. As a result, the pumps were not able to provide enough chilled water to the air handlers on the higher floors of the high school. 

After partnering with the general contractor and the design team to remedy these issues, the temperature and humidity were successfully regulated delivering a reliable and efficient facility which is enjoyed by students, faculty, visitors, and administrators.

Shepton High School – Plano ISDShepton High School – Plano ISD

Shepton High School in Plano ISD, home to over 1,400 students in the ninth and tenth grades, underwent renovations beginning in August 2017 extending to January 2019. Renovations were made to the existing 91,425 square foot building, as well as, a new addition of 28,000 square feet.

During the renovation, our team performed the testing and balancing of the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems. We reviewed the start-up documentation, control sequence verification, control point and sensor calibration verification of all BAS points and sensors from the field to the operator’s graphical interface.

The schedule was particularly challenging on this project. The phasing took place over approximately 18 months, some of which occurred during the school year with students and staff in the building. To accommodate this constraint, we adjusted our team’s schedules to working at night. Our team excelled in the documentation and coordination of the schedule. Ideas were suggested “with the end in mind” to ensure effective time and resource allocation.

While there was a clear division between old and new construction, oftentimes the mechanical lines of division were not as clear. For example, supply outlets were disconnected while still serving an occupied area because much of the ductwork was either recently demolished or newly installed. We partnered with the project team and Shepton High School to ensure disruptions were minimized.

Success was achieved at Shepton High School through consistent documentation of deficiency items, driving project team accountability, scheduling flexibility, and our unmatched expertise of HVAC systems.
