Facilities Planning & Construction

A Message from the Vice Chancellor

Throughout the past year, our Facilities Planning & Construction team and our project partners have continued to proceed with the design and construction of numerous projects across the Texas Tech University System with uncompromised quality and processes. The hard work of these individuals is visible with many exciting projects now coming to completion:

  • • Construction on Angelo State University’s Mayer Museum reached final completion in August 2020. This new, approximately 32,000 GSF facility is in the heart of ASU’s campus and will provide research space, exhibit galleries, and a ceramics kiln area all to support the ASU bachelor’s degree program in studio art. 

  • • The Medical Science Building II on the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso campus has now reached final completion and includes 219,900 GSF of research space, lecture halls and classrooms, teaching space, as well as faculty and research offices. 

  • • As we continue to develop facilities for the TTUHSC El Paso Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine, we have now completed construction on the Dental Learning Center and are nearing completion on the Dental Oral Health Clinic. These dental facilities are expected to open in Spring 2021 and will provide world-class facilities for future dental students in the Borderplex Region.

  • • The TTU School of Veterinary Medicine project continues to progress nicely with completion expected on time to welcome the inaugural class of approximately 60 students for Fall 2021. This will be the state of Texas' first new school of veterinary medicine in more than a century. 

  • • The Dustin R. Womble Basketball Center continues to progress at a solid rate and is scheduled for completion this spring. This building, supporting our men’s and women’s basketball programs, will be one of the finest basketball facilities in the nation.

  • • We are getting ready to put shovels in the ground this spring on a $30 million project in Midland for Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center on the Midland College campus. This project will provide a large addition to the existing Dorothy and Todd Aaron Medical Sciences Building, as well as a renovation of the existing educational spaces. When completed, it will house new classroom spaces, testing space, faculty/staff offices, and a full Gross Anatomy Lab.

2020 also brought on the renovation of two historical landmarks on the TTU campus – Weeks Hall and the Dairy Barn.  Both projects are fully complete with Weeks Hall reaching completion in Summer 2020 and the Dairy Barn reaching completion in Fall 2020. These two historical landmarks are preserved as iconic facilities that will serve our students and faculty for decades to come.

  • • Weeks Hall, originally constructed in 1957 as a residence hall, has now been renovated into office space for faculty and staff, as well as student workspace. See the new Weeks Hall HERE.

  • • Built in 1926, the Dairy Barn was one of the four original buildings on the TTU campus. Its renovation supports TTU’s collaborative learning environment with the creation of studio spaces and a historic display area on the first floor and conversion of the second floor from a hayloft to an event venue, using as much of the preserved wood structure and repurposed materials from the original building as possible. The renovation of the Dairy Barn has been hailed as “the best project we have ever done at Texas Tech,” by Past Chairman of the Board Chris Huckabee. He stated this is “because I believe if we lose honoring the heritage of who we are, then we give up everything.” READ MORE HERE.

FP&C is excited about the continued growth within the TTU System and is determined and devoted to providing our institutions with first-class facilities for our students, faculty and staff. We will continue to ensure our institution's facilities are on the leading edge of higher education, research and service. As we continue with the planning, design, and construction of many buildings in our System, please stay informed on all our projects by utilizing our Partner Resource tab on this website. We value our partners and appreciate their participation as we continue to select project teams.
