Texas A&M System Board Of Regents Approve Three College Station Area Projects

Texas A&M system board of regents at their last meeting approved three projects in and near the flagship campus totaling more than $41 million dollars.

What began as a plant sciences building at Texas A&M in 1962, is getting a $26 million dollar makeover. Regents approved the renovation of the Peterson Building…which will become the new home of the department of computer science and engineering. This is in conjunction with plant pathology and microbiology moving into a new building, and the college of liberal arts moving a brain laboratory into the Heep building. The interior of the 85,000 square foot, four story Peterson Building will be completely demolished in order to take care of asbestos. The project will also address electrical, heating and air conditioning, and ADA issues, and replace the roof. The interior demolition will start in February, and completion of the project is scheduled for next December.

Regents also gave final approval for a nearly $10 million dollar project affecting 214 buildings, most of them on the flagship campus. Construction starts this month, and is expected to take one and a half years to complete, to replace equipment that controls the heating and air conditioning. It takes six pages to list all the affected buildings. Locations include water well buildings, beef cattle and pig structures, residence halls, the Bush Library and Museum, and the system headquarters.

Another multimillion dollar project approved by the regents involves the AgriLife extension service Wallrath Building in College Station. The heating-air conditioning system will be replaced after two hundred work orders in the last two years. There will also be a new roof on the building that is located on what was formerly called Lakeway Drive south of Fitch. The $5.7 million dollar project is scheduled to start in January, with completion expected next August.
