Nearly $55 million dollars in new construction has started or will start by January on the RELLIS campus.

That’s after three projects were approved November’s Texas A&M system board of regents meeting.

More than $29 million will be spent on a warehouse, office, and training building for the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), which is a system agency. Regents approved TDEM director Nim Kidd’s recommendation to build 60,000 square feet of storage, 30,020 gross square foot regional headquarters office and operations center, and almost 6,000 square feet for shipping.
