In order to enhance current academic offerings, Texas Tech University sought to construct a new $20 million facility near downtown Odessa. The new two-story, 54,000 sf building will include academic space for lecture halls and classrooms, research laboratories, faculty and staff offices, conference areas, and specialized instruction and support space. The classrooms also include extensive data communications capabilities to incorporate HealthNet distance learning. Maverick is the civil engineer of record and is responsible for site plan coordination, platting, drainage analysis, design plans for grading, drainage, paving, onsite utilities, and a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan.
The Hillcrest School has been pursuing and achieving its mission of delivering exceptional specialized education for over two decades. In 2016 it welcomed a significant new addition to its sole Midland campus. This project required Maverick Engineers to work with the constraints associated with an existing site and structure including the update of existing public right of way in the form of sidewalks to comply with today’s ADA standards. Our services included: Project Management, Grading, Paving, and Drainage Plans, Landscape Plans and a construction SWPPP.
Midland ISD’s 2012 Bond Package included $163 million for building and renovation at the elementary level. Maverick was responsible for the engineering of fifteen campus renovations simultaneously, using four different architects.
Bowie Elementary is one of Midland’s signature magnets within the public school system. With the 2012 Bond Package, this Performance and Fine Arts oriented grade school was awarded funds for the development of a new performing arts facility with learning centers. It also budgeted significant additions to the parking and traffic routing facilities. As overall project Civil Engineer, Maverick was responsible for the design of Paving, Grading, Utility, and Drainage Plans. Due to the tremendous displacement of permeable earth for the additional building and parking facilities, the firm was faced with dealing with significant onsite detention. In the end, Maverick engineers designed a basin system that overcame the potential issues and contributed to the character and beauty of the site with carefully coordinated landscape design.
This elementary campus is the first new school constructed in Midland ISD in over 20 years. Maverick provided the civil construction documents for the demolition of the existing site and construction of the new building. This project required re-routing of a city main water line traversing the site, as well as plans for demolition, grading & drainage, paving, utilities, and a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan.
Washington Math & Sciences Institute was the recipient of no small addition in 2014. The Architect and Project Lead for the additions contracted Maverick engineers to produce plans for a new student drop-off/pick-up bus roundabout. This project included Site Topography needs, Paving, Grading, and Drainage Plans, as well as a Construction Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan. Maverick was able to contribute further by providing Project Management throughout every step of the Municipal permitting and approval process.
Positioned along E. Scharbauer Drive, a busy east-west street, Pease Elementary was struggling with efficient and safe parent pick-up and drop-off of students at peak times during the school day. The funds awarded this campus were allocated to solving this issue. Maverick was able to contribute its decades of combined experience in heavily trafficked retail and commercial designs to implement an efficient, cost-effective layout that eliminated the issues associated with the problem of quick access to and away from the campus.
After being open for 30 years, the parking and student drop-off areas were no longer adequate for the current needs of the school. Midland ISD contracted with Maverick to provide an updated drop-off scheme, additional faculty parking, and new ADA-compliant pedestrian pathways. Engineering tasks included cost estimates and plans for Right of Way improvements, grading & drainage, paving, erosion control, and public improvements.
Maverick designed a new faculty parking lot and added an additional parent drop-off route to the existing parking/street flow on Cimarron Avenue.
This project is the first phase of the Borderlands Research Institute. The new facility includes a greenhouse, shade structure, potting shed, outdoor classroom and pedestrian entrance with accessible parking. Maverick’s services included survey coordination, a Site Plan, Paving Plan and Grading Plan. This project required the relocation of an existing Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment System. Maverick provided a plan to facilitate the move. A phased plan for paving was included as part of Maverick’s design process.
