Facilities Planning & Construction
A Message from the Vice Chancellor
There is no better time in the history of the Texas Tech University System than right now! As the institutions in our System continue to experience historical growth, FP&C has the honor to work alongside our leadership to provide our services, ensuring that our end users have the resources to meet their needs.
We would like to thank and congratulate the Texas Legislators of the 86th session for such a historic session for the Texas Tech University System. Legislators secured the $17.35 million for the TTU System to start a veterinary medicine program at Texas Tech that is designed to address the shortage of veterinarians in this region. They also included a state budget of $20 million to establish the Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in El Paso. This makes the TTU System one of only nine systems in the country to offer undergraduate, medical, law, nursing, pharmacy, dental, and veterinary education.
FP&C continues 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. We participated in two ribbon-cutting ceremonies in October for some of the major projects our team has been working on. The J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts Theatre & Dance Complex is a $23 million, 52,727-square-foot, two-story addition to the existing Maedgen Theatre building located on the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock. The Experimental Sciences Building II is 117,800 GSF of flexible, open, and modular high-tech interdisciplinary research laboratories, principal research investigator offices, core instrumentation facilities, support space and three conference rooms to foster Texas Tech's growing research enterprise.
We are actively working on the renovation of two iconic historical landmarks on the TTU campus – Weeks Hall and the Dairy Barn. Weeks Hall will be completed next summer, and the Dairy Barn project will begin in November. We are nearing completion on the $99 million Lubbock Education, Research and Technology + West expansion project at TTUHSC Lubbock, which is the largest capital project since the campus was founded. Construction continues on Angelo State University’s Mayer Museum, as well as the Medical Science Building II on the TTUHSC El Paso campus. In addition, in El Paso, we are developing the facility needs for the future Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine
It is a busy, historic, and exciting time for FP&C. We are privileged to be a part of the remarkable growth taking place in the TTU System! We look forward to working with our stakeholders and partners on numerous capital projects to ensure our institutions continue to be on the leading edge of higher education, research and service.
From Here, It’s Possible!
