The West Houston Institute provides a state-of-the-art science, technology, and engineering showcase using 21st Century School philosophies and interactive learning environments. This project included group learning rooms, labs, ‘maker space’, computer rooms, IT support, K-12 and community engagement areas, allied health space, and a conference center.

GarzaEMC provided civil engineering services such as utility design for new water, wastewater and dry utilities, grading and drainage, and obtained City of Houston Permit approval. The majority of the site is within the 100-year floodplain; drainage and floodplain mitigation were major components of the engineering analysis and design activities.
