The project consisted of Civil Engineering design and Permitting for the construction of the New Liberty Hill High School. The 95 acre site is located on Highway 29 at its intersection with County Road 277.
The school was designed for 1,600 students and consists of forty-eight classrooms, nine science labs, ten computer labs, one competition gym, career and technology classrooms, band hall, choir, and an auditorium.
Site features include: Parking for 1,100 vehicles, a football stadium for 5,000, an 8-lane track, two practice fields, a baseball field and a softball field (both with seating for 500), tennis courts, field houses, a weight room, and concession stands.
Challenges included designing a large storm water system consisting of underground pipes and open channels dedicated to carry off-site flows to bypass the proposed building and improvements as well as the existing residence located close to the natural drainage discharge point.
The project also included the coordination with the following entities:
- City of Liberty Hill for the design of a wastewater lift station and force main to convey flows off-site and connect to the City’s wastewater system.
- Local water provider for the connection to their proposed water line to provide domestic and fire protection water to the site.
- Williamson County for the design of improvements to County Road 277.
- TxDOT for the design of the deceleration lanes in coordination with TxDOT’s ongoing Highway 29 widening project.
