Bel Air High school Gymnasium- El Paso, TX

This project consisted of the design of a new two-story  multiuse gymnasium with a total area of approximately 87,780 square feet. 
The competitive gym is on the first floor and a practice gym on the second floor. The practice gym included three courts, a wrestling room and a gymnastics practice area. 
The competition gym is a column free space so there are no obstructed views of the court. Floor Trusses for the second floor were designed to clear span 135 feet. Since the second floor of the building would also be used for athletics, vibrations in this floor were a concern. The suspended equipment like goals and lights could not be affected by vibrations due to activities on the second floor.

Trinity Basin Preparatory School- Classroom Addition- FT. Worth, TX

Stubbs Engineering was elected for this project because of their design-build delivery approach. The project demanded a tight schedule, as the construction consisted of a 14,000-square-foot, single-story classroom addition to the existing school that needed to be finished before the start of the school year. This gave the firm three months to design and implement their solution. Flexibility was practiced during this time as well, as the owners decided to turn the one-story class addition into new plans for a second-story complex. Stubbs readjusted their plans and, with flexibility and precision, managed to meet the requested deadlines of the school district. By using the design-build method, Stubbs Engineering was able to speed up construction time and meet safety, aesthetic, and economic standards within a short amount of time.
