Achieving Campus Construction Goals
Our firm has provided construction management services for over 230,000sf in the Texas A&M University system on various campus locations. Our firm's efficient planning and experience working on active campuses facilitated fast-track construction schedules, while achieving the highest project safety levels. Projects for the University include:
- the alumni building, completed without a single lost time accident
- a three-story 90,000sf science building in Laredo, TX
- a two-story 73,000sf Maritime Engineering and Technology Building in Galveston, TX
- a three-story 65,000sf expansion and renovation building in College Station, TX
The science buildings, both cast-in-place concrete structures, have allowed our client to achieve its goal to better serve students in the respective academic programs as well as increase enrollment.
Unique Finishes Create Unique Challenges
The alumni building, which consists of mixed office space (private offices and open area cubicles), four conference rooms with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment and a 500sf data center presented a unique challenge for our team. The project included reusing, refurbishing and reconfiguring 2,500lf of architectural woodwork and 52 solid slab raised panel doors installed 23 years ago. The species of South American tree originally used is now listed as an endangered species. Therefore, we employed a strict quality assurance and control plan to carefully remove, preserve on-site and reinstall the precious wood. Detailed records were kept of all wood removed and, much to the delight of the client, it was successfully incorporated into the new space without blemish.
