Texas A&M University at Galveston celebrated its topping out milestone on September 27, 2017. Vaughn is serving as construction manager-at-risk on this new 61,500 SF facility which will host large campus events and academic conferences.

The Academic Building Phase Two will be one of the first buildings that visitors, prospective students, and guests see upon arrival on the campus. The new multipurpose space solidifies and advances the institution’s commitment to undergraduate and graduate instruction in maritime studies in science, engineering, and business.

The two-story building includes a large multipurpose space, support space, smaller seminar rooms, a business center, campus bookstore, light food service, human resources office suite, and an office suite for the associate vice president of administration and auxiliary services.  Vaughn’s scope of work also includes infrastructure improvements, such as upgrading and expanding the campus central plant and a waste water treatment plant.

The event was hosted by Vaughn Construction and was attended by Mr. Grant W. Shallenberger, associate vice president for administration and auxiliary services at Texas A&M University at Galveston, and trade contractors working o­­­n the project.

The Academic Building Phase Two building is on schedule, and should be completed in the summer of 2018.
