The RWB team joined Cadence McShane Construction, Perkins & Will, and Richardson ISD for the groundbreaking of Lake Highlands Middle School on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
The middle school will be located next to Lake Highlands Junior High at 10301 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, and is the first school construction for the district since 2014. The new Lake Highlands Middle School will feature a 249,000-square-foot, 3-story middle school that includes an ICC-500 rated community tornado shelter. The project is a replacement for the existing Lake Highlands Junior High School that was originally built in the 1960s.
Midlothian Heritage High School received multiple additions and renovations that started in summer 2020. These additions just opened for Fall 2022 school year.
Midlothian Jean Coleman Elementary School is a new elementary school that started construction Spring and Summer 2021 and is slated to open later this Fall.
UTA Engineering Career Fair
Tuesday, September 20th, RWB’s Andrew Murphy and Darrell Williams met with hundreds of engineering students at the University of Texas Arlington’s Engineering Career Fair, discussing various internship and fulltime opportunities available at the firm.
“Meeting and engaging with so many talented UTA engineering students was a terrific experience. It’s amazing to see such great interest for our profession as MEP consulting engineers. I hop we get the chance to collaborate with them, either as interns or full-time employees. We are always looking for young engineers with the energy and curiosity to learn and grow as part of our team.”

With summer temperatures in the triple digits and winters that can give way to ice storms and snow, energy consumption for HVAC systems in buildings can become extreme and further lead to greater energy costs. To combat that, RWB provides HVAC engineering services housed within the Mechanical Engineering Division.
HVAC engineering services can provide high value for commercial buildings and other larger buildings by making heating and cooling systems more reliable and energy efficient. Some of the benefits that RWB’s HVAC engineering services provide are:
- Keeping indoor temperatures and humidity within a range that is healthy for humans and any specific indoor items (i.e. museum artifacts or library books);
- Providing indoor air quality that ensures a constant supply of fresh air and prevents the buildup of pollutants;
- And, enabling clients to receive optimal energy costs.
