Goose Creek CISD’s new technology center—completed in partnership with Huckabee—was recently featured in Civil Engineering, the Magazine of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The magazine’s article highlights the technology center’s unique design, which allows the building to withstand certain severe weather conditions, such as hurricanes. Goose Creek CISD is located just East of Houston, which like any city along the coast, is vulnerable to tropical weather.
The 2-story, 32,400 square foot technology center stores crucial district data and provides space for training and storage. A hardened, 2,000 square foot area within the building protects computer servers and can withstand wind speeds that are roughly equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane. Huckabee served as the architect and the structural engineer for this project. To read the full article, please click here.
