Brazoswood CTE Center Delivers Students to Success

by Kat Phelps, Marketing Manager

DBR Engineering worked with VLK Architects on the newly constructed Brazoswood High School Career & Technical Education (CTE) Center in Clute, Texas for Brazosport ISD. The 91,000-square-foot facility includes classrooms, laboratories, and program spaces for culinary arts, welding, manufacturing, veterinary technology, floral design, health sciences, information technology, and general STEM education. The building also features a business lab, a cosmetology lab, and a broadcasting studio.

DBR provided MEP Engineering, Security, Technology, AV Consulting, and Building Commissioning services for the new CTE Center. DBR has recently performed engineering services for a new 51,000-square-foot multi-sport Fieldhouse and additions and renovations to the existing 300,000-square-foot high school, all located on the same site.

The Exhibition Hall, running throughout the building, showcases student projects and awards. This space can host a variety of events that are catered by culinary arts students. The students also operate the Culinary Arts Bistro. High-bay spaces with connecting overhead doors are provided for Rocketry, Robotics, and STEM labs.

Designed through VLK | LAUNCH®, students, teachers, community members, and administrators came together to develop the conceptual design of this learning environment. The design embodies the intended “Education with Purpose” empowerment, and it now serves 2,800 students with a focus on career success.
