Hommel library Huckabee Texas

Hommel ES Wins TEXO Award

By | Client News

A renovation of Hommel Elementary School received first place in the TEXO Distinguished Building Award competition for the Design Build I category. Huckabee partnered with Sedalco Construction Services for the project.

The team worked with Everman ISD to complete a 31,000 square foot renovation of the school that included new classrooms and safety and security upgrades. The project was of special importance to the community because of the building’s historic significance: The facility opened in 1922 as The Everman School and served grades K-12. Through the years, and multiple renovations, the facility had lost some of its original elements.

While the project focused on creating usable space for academics, the team was also able to bring some of the historic charm back to the campus, restoring an old gym floor (which is now the library) and re-create its markings, refinishing the original floors, utilizing tin ceilings and bead-board wainscoting and replacing the windows with period-style panes.
