JonesDBR worked with Gensler and Turner Ramirez on the design for the new Del Mar College campus in Corpus Christi. JonesDBR is providing MEP engineering services for the 250,000 sf Southside Campus which project includes a new central plant and utilities, a main building and library, a STEM building, a culinary arts facility.

Located at the intersection of Yorktown Boulevard and Rodd Field Road, the new campus will be home to “Centers of Excellence” in architecture and drafting technology, bio-science, and hospitality and culinary arts. The campus will also provide core courses for transfer students, dual credit, developmental education, workforce, and continuing education programs.

The Southside Campus Project will include:

  • Central Plant (8,631 square feet) as part of physical facilities operations;

  • Hospitality and Culinary Institute (59,561 square feet) housing ultramodern teaching spaces, including kitchen labs, a coffee shop, and a public-accessible restaurant/dining facility to provide students with hands-on, real-world learning experiences;

  • Main Building (80,437 square feet) housing the library, student services, community meeting spaces, and a coffee shop;

  • STEM Building (100,915 square feet) housing the Architecture/Drafting Technology program and biology, biotechnology and biomanufacturing programs with contemporary teaching spaces, laboratories, and equipment along with other STEM-related programs, including engineering.

Enrollment is expected to be at 3,400 students in the first year. The campus is being built on what is called the “educational corridor.” It will be only 15 minutes away from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and 30 minutes from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. The STEM building is set to open in fall 2022, while the culinary arts and main buildings are set to open in spring 2023.
