Cypress Creek High School
Cypress Fairbanks ISD opened its seventh district high school, Cypress Creek High School, in northwest Houston in 2002.
The more than 460,000 square-foot facility includes a centralized administration suite, a library, a student commons, an 850-seat auditorium, music facilities and a daycare center. The HVAC system in this school makes use of a huge chilled water thermal storage system requiring a unique open-and-closed chilled water piping system approach. The use of the thermal storage tank allows the school system to operate the chillers at off-peak electrical power periods, which reduces the utility cost to the schools for the daytime cooling loads of the building.
