Texas A&M moving forward with Academic and Administration Building project
Texas A&M-San Antonio has hired a construction manager to assist with its Academic and Administration Building project. A request for proposals will be released April 3 to subcontractors and suppliers. The project entails construction of a 58,000-square-foot, mission-style brick and stone facade building. In addition to providing office space for administration staff, the building will have classrooms, art studios, a work shop and study spaces. Price proposals for all bids will be due by April 24.
In January 2018 Texas A&M released a request for qualifications for an architect/engineer. The scope of project stated that the building should have 19 classrooms, an art suite, language lab suite and incubator classroom with support space for each academic function, 20 faculty offices with support spaces, a small lobby and general storage. The building was to be located just south of the existing Central Academic Building on the northeast corner of the future “quad.” The planned amount for the project was $25 million, with the amount available for construction set at more than $18 million.
