Awards - Garland ISD Harris Hill Administration Building

Garland ISD Harris Hill Administration Building

RWB Consulting Engineers was honored to receive the 2024 Building Technology Award for their exemplary work on the Garland ISD Harris Hill Administration Building. The project aimed to resolve the complaints made by the building owner and occupants, which included inadequate cooling, poor maintenance access, and high energy bills. RWB partnered with Glen Partners on this project as a sub-consultant to perform an HVAC retrofit, resulting in improved comfort, easier equipment maintenance, and lower energy consumption.

RWB Employees at Form Follows Fitness 5K

Employees enjoyed their first year running and walking at the annual Form Follows Fitness 5K at Klyde Warren Park on February 17, 2024. The race began with a chilly, brisk run, and it finished with sunshine and a fun metal design of the Dallas West End.

March 2024 Collin College Foundation

On March 2, 2024, the Collin College Foundation organized a scholarship fundraiser with the theme ‘Havana Nights’. The ballroom was filled with vibrant colors, and everyone embraced the Cuban style, creating a lively and enjoyable atmosphere. We had a blast participating in a trivia challenge against industry partners, and we did quite well, answering the majority of the questions. It was a spectacular time of fun and laughter!

A group of our RWB colleagues recently took part in the 2024 Dallas ASHRAE Spring Golf Classic, held at the Cowboys Golf Club, to raise funds and show support for ASHRAE’s events throughout the year. One of our mechanical engineers, Christine Miner, is also the Treasurer for the ASHRAE Dallas Chapter. On the 25th and 26th of April, at the LIVE by Loews Hotel in Arlington, TX, ASHRAE will be holding its Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) and 3rd annual Engineering Summit, which the proceeds from the golf classic tournament help fund.
