District Gateway Improvements

The District Gateway Improvements Project was undertaken with the aim of creating a vibrant and inviting entrance into District K in Houston, Texas. The project was designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the area while also improving accessibility and safety for pedestrians and motorists at five major intersections along US 90A/South Main: Fondren Road, Hillcroft Avenue, Chimney Rock Road, S. Post Oak Road, and Hiram Clarke Road.

Allen Drive Roundabouts

Huitt-Zollars led the Schematic as well as Plans, Specifications, and Estimate design effort for the reconfiguration of the interchange of Allen Drive at US 75 from existing all-way stops into unique teardrop roundabouts creating a signature gateway for the City of Allen. The intersection was identified as a local priority by Allen City Council in 2018 due to growing traffic volumes, increased pedestrian use, and expectations for future development in downtown Allen. After a lengthy review process, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) approved the proposed design in 2021.

Houston Methodist Hospital - Main 200 Cardiac MRI Suite Renovation

The Huitt-Zollars team was selected to provide a fast track and collaborative design to renovate the existing Main 200 Cardiac MR Suite. The goal of the project was to provide an efficient and collaborative solution to remove existing non-operational MRI equipment and replace the existing operational MRI equipment. The scope of the project was to renovate the existing 3,500 SF Imaging Suite to provide a functional MRI Suite with a new 1.5 Tesla MRI, Reading Room, Patient Waiting, Patient Holding, and the required Staff and Patient support spaces.

Texas A&M University Collaborative Learning Center

The Texas A&M University Intergenerational Learning Center (ILC) is a multi-phase educational, housing, and research project being developed through a public-private partnership between the Texas A&M University System and Stonehenge Holdings and is located on-campus adjacent to a large cluster of student housing. The ILC will also function as a research branch of the Colleges of Medicine, Engineering, and Education creating a collaborative environment between an early childhood development center and senior living.

San Jacinto North Campus Cosmetology and Culinary Center

Huitt-Zollars provided architectural services for the new construction of a 57,650 SF building at San Jacinto College North Campus to house cosmetology and culinary training and certification programs. The Center was designed to replicate a professional salon and restaurant environment to support instruction based on real-world situations, which prepares students to be industry-ready while also creating a positive, engaged perception of San Jacinto College throughout the community.

Dyer Road BRIO Bus Rapid Transit System

Huitt-Zollars served as the lead designer for the Dyer Corridor BRIO bus rapid transit system that reaches 10.2 miles in length and includes 12 stops in each direction. The system connects with other transit services at three terminals along the route and features specially branded BRIO buses, a distinctive shelter design adapted to site conditions, pre-pay fare collection, next bus information, and traffic signal priority.

Capital Metro McKalla Station and Siding

The McKalla Station will be a new MetroRail station located on the rail corridor, approximately 850 feet south of Braker Lane and adjacent to the new Major League Soccer (MLS) Stadium. This station will serve as a key transit option for stadium customers, and serve the greater community as an expanded service for the MetroRail Red Line; large residential areas exist to the east of the proposed station, and major commercial, retail, and university areas in the vicinity. 

North White Chapel Boulevard Widening

The North White Chapel Boulevard Widening Project was initially approved in 2008 as part of the Southlake 2030 Master Mobility Plan to improve safety and mobility and is the largest roadway reconstruction project that the City has ever undertaken. Huitt-Zollars was the prime engineering design consultant responsible for the final design plans and specifications for the reconstruction of 4,000 LF of North White Chapel Boulevard from Emerald Boulevard to south of Highland Street. Construction for the project was completed in mid-2022 with a construction cost of $14 million.
