South Cameron High School | Cameron , Louisiana
Cost: $20,500,000 | Square Feet: 102,000
This project consisted of the design of a new replacement facility for Cameron High School that was destroyed during Hurricane Rita. The replacement facility included approximately 102,000 square feet of classrooms, offices, kitchen, cafetorium, and library areas elevated approximately 14 feet above grade level. HVAC system design included air conditioning all areas, general restroom exhaust, science lab fume hood exhaust, and kitchen ventilation design. The air conditioning system was composed of several variable volume split system direct expansion air handling units supplying air through medium pressure duct work to VAV boxes in each classroom and constant volume split system direct expansion air handling units for the administration areas. All mechanical equipment was controlled by a DDC temperature controls system. Plumbing design included domestic water piping, sanitary sewer and vent piping, natural gas piping for the kitchen equipment and natural gas generator. Fire protection design included a wet pipe system throughout the facility served by a dedicated fire pump. The parking area and commons areas below first floor level were served by a corrosion resistant dry pipe sprinkler system.
