The Leander ISD Technology Center is the first new facility of its kind in Leander, a central hub that is the life source of the district. Due to the significance of the equipment within the building, parts of the Technology Center were designed to withstand tornado force winds, allowing not only the vital equipment to continue powering the district, but also providing a command center for staff and emergency operations. The provisions include a command center and shower facilities for extended use during disaster recovery. In addition to the structural integrity of the facility, a high degree of security dictated the designing of corridors and access points, allowing authorized personnel to move easily through the building. Conference centers were designed to serve the faculty and the larger needs of the district, allowing district interaction to become part of the facility in a way that is both secure and controlled.
