The new Lake Travis Middle School project, one of four major projects contained in the Lake Travis Independent School District’s 2012 Bond program, has been selected to receive a Star of Distinction for Sustainability in the planning and design of Texas public education facilities. The award program is a collaborative project of the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA), the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), the Texas Society of Architects, and the Council of Educational Facility Planners International.
According to TASA/TASB, projects receiving a Star of Distinction for Sustainability support sustainable attributes and how those have been articulated into learning opportunities for students. The new Lake Travis Middle School project will be featured as part of the Exhibit of School Architecture at the TASA/TASB Annual Convention to be held October 2-4, 2015 at the Austin Convention Center. The exhibit and awards competition showcase new and renovated Texas schools and celebrate excellence in planning and design of the learning environment.
The new Lake Travis Middle School was designed by Fields & Associates Architects. The $53 million facility encompasses more than 225,000 square feet and has the capacity to house 1,200 students.
