Lake Travis ISD Bee Cave Middle School

Lake Travis ISD Bee Cave Middle School is a newly constructed 240,000 square foot facility located in Austin, Texas. This $67.7 million school, designed by Fields & Associates Architects, was opened to its inaugural class of students in August 2019. With a window encased rotunda at its center, Bee Caves Middle School has an arts wing with a band hall, practice rooms, dance studio, as well as a multipurpose auditorium/cafeteria. The athletics department offers a competition gym, weight room, a football field alongside a practice field, as well as tennis courts. There are common areas throughout the school designed for collaborative group work or solitary studying. For the HVAC systems, the engineers designed 350-tons of geothermal ground-source heat pumps for classroom areas, and 280-tons of chilled water units for common areas and ventilation systems. Efficient LED lighting was designed and installed throughout the school.
