Project summary provided by submitting company.
HISD High School for Law and Criminal justice is a unique, three story, tilt wall high school that used a total of 73 panels of varying thickness and recesses. In addition to the extra attention to detail needed due to these varying sizes, there were three distinct formliner patterns used throughout the project. Thus creating an ordinary High School into a unique building with crisp lines and artistic detail. The panels around the gymnasium are composite insulated panels to help with the schools energy efficiency and still maintain an aesthetically pleasing look. TAS encountered a few challenges during the project. One being the need to leave large sections of the slab to be left out for crane access to set the interior panels. Thus causing areas that were not conductive for casting panels. So, these panels were cast on temporary casting beds. An additional challenge was the availability of detailed drawings, which TAS overcame with ingenuity and extensive experience from their teamwork.
