Three wings extending off the Commons house classrooms, administrative offices for the entire campus, cafeteria, library, and a 150-seat tiered theater used by the entire school for plays, lectures and presentations. Included in the building program for the upper school was a varsity gymnasium, an outdoor sports complex and a bell tower.

The Keller Independent School District needed a school campus that would accommodate the growing population of young families. The number of new students didn’t warrant the district building two new schools so they opted to combine both middle and intermediate education programs at one campus.
The result is a two-story, 190,000-square-foot campus that will accommodate up to 1,200 students. The floor plan features separate wings and drop-off areas for the middle and intermediate school populations with shared core elements. Collaborative learning areas are located throughout the building, including in the courtyard between the two wings. Classrooms have rotating project walls that can be turned toward the collaborative areas.
This state-of-the-art facility is certified LEED Silver for Schools and incorporates energy efficient systems such as geothermal heating/cooling, daylight harvesting and solar-controlled sun louvers.

This new elementary school designed for the Lake Worth Independent School District is laid out in a pinwheel configuration to take advantage of a challenging greenfield site in Northwest Fort Worth. The building’s four wings are divided by student age and public use and intersect at a central glass-enclosed commons area. This taller volume commons creates a gathering place for student and faculty events, and the geometry of this intersection creates dynamic entrances from each side. The library and the administrative offices are located adjacent to the commons and are arranged to control access to the building.

A 2007 public bond package brought improvements to various aspects of the Fort Worth ISD, including the design and construction of this new 70,000 sq foot school. As the only new school in the bond program, the project brought new ideas and technologies to the district.
This single-story kindergarten through 5th grade school contains classrooms, gymatorium, kitchen, administrative offices, media center/library, teachers’ workrooms and ancillary spaces. Instead of long, narrow classroom wings as is prevalent in many schools, the design of this school has classrooms on the perimeter of a larger, almost square building with shared spaces in the center. It features the first geothermal cooling and heating systems in the Fort Worth ISD.
Peace Elementary School is the first CHPS (Collaborative of High Performance Schools) project for the Fort Worth ISD, with BIM technology used throughout the Design and Construction Documents phases.

All elementary schools in the Keller Independent School District had kindergarten classrooms but not pre-K classrooms, so the district planned this new facility to house early learning programs as well as take care of growing storage and technology staging needs.
The 84,000-square-foot building has 25 preschool classrooms, administrative offices, a cafetorium, training/lecture rooms for faculty and staff training, and office space for special education teachers. Record and equipment storage is housed in a large warehouse and distribution center directly behind and attached to the education center.
