Project Details

Marine Creek Middle School is a new-construction K-12 facility in Fort Worth, Texas. The client, Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District, sought to bring a modern learning environment to their students in 6-8th grade. The facility opened in August 2019 with a capacity for 1,200 students and staff. RWB provided the MEP engineering design on this award-winning project.

Putting the Owner First

Marine Creek Middle School – Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD

At RWB, we take time to listen to our clients and understand their needs. Our team weighed the desires of the client when designing the MEP system for the school:

  • Delivered the project on-time and on-schedule, despite a shorter than normal time frame
  • The modern architectural design required extra coordination effort among all the trades to ensure space and fit of building systems
  • Reduced the equipment footprint and cost by applying our in-depth understanding of local building codes and standards like ASHRAE 90.1-2013
  • Minimized the size and cost of ductwork by implementing an outside air pre-treatment system
