Westlake City Schools Program
High School, Intermediate School, Middle school
Osborn provided civil, mechanical, and technology engineering services with MKC Associates for Phase I of the implementation of the Master Facilities Plan for the Westlake City School District consisting of three schools. The buildings have been designed with a goal of achieving LEED Silver certification. Phase I of the plan was an $84M program comprising 410,000 square feet of new or renovated space that includes:
- Renovation of the 87,500sf Lee Burneson Middle School converted into an intermediate school for grades 5 to 6. This project included a complete replacement of the building’s main HVAC systems and controls, plumbing systems, as well as additions and modifications to the network, audiovisual, and security systems. The project also included a new roof, windows, and exterior wall restorations. Completed: Winter 2014
- New middle school for grades 7 to 8 near the existing building. The new 97,500 square foot middle school was designed to achieve LEED Silver certification. Osborn was responsible for the design of the site (which included the existing Lee Burneson Middle School), the HVAC and fire protection systems, as well as all of the low voltage technology systems. Energy modeling has shown that the design will result in a 32% improvement in proposed building performance rating compared to the baseline performance according to ASHRAE 90.1, resulting in 11 LEED points for EA c.1. Completed: Summer 2013.
- Extensive renovation to Westlake High School while preserving additions that were completed in 2005. A total of 225,000 square feet of new building space was added to an existing Performing Arts Center as part of this complete overhaul of Westlake High School. Osborn again provided HVAC, fire protection and technology system design for the project, also targeted for LEED Silver certification. The design included wet and dry laboratory spaces. Energy modeling is indicating a 29% improvement in proposed building performance rating compared to the baseline performance according to ASHRAE 90.1, resulting in 9 LEED points for EA c.1. Completed: Summer 2013.
