Texas A&M University System unveils plans for new R&D campus

WCN Editorial Team 4 May 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Texas A&M University System chancellor John Sharp has unveiled plans for a new $150m research and development (R&D) campus.

 
The new project will be located at the Riverside Campus, in the former Bryan Air Base, a World War II facility that Texas A&M University acquired in 1962. The 2,000-acre tract will be named the Rellis Campus.

The $150m investment includes $25m to demolish 32 old buildings, rebuild roads and update utilities. The base's chapel and two hangars will be renovated in recognition of the site's role of training pilots for the World War II.

Construction of the first building is likely to begin in September 2016 and the $25m in upgrades is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
