JonesDBR worked with PBK on the design for a new Multipurpose Academic Building, which was the first building at the new McAllen location. The facility contains multi-use spaces and include shared facilities that support interdisciplinary programs and used by the school’s Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Engineering, Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Science, and Liberal Arts departments.

The new 3-story structure is approximately 60,000 square feet and includes a lecture hall, mid-size and small general classrooms to support both core curriculum, program specific classes, lab spaces for wet, dry, engineering, technology and education classes. It also features administrative offices for administrative personnel, faculty, staff, teaching assistants, security and operations with ample parking, site development and utilities on site.

The new building is in a prominent location that addresses one of the major circulation intersections in the Tres Lagos development. Design features create dynamic connections between the outdoors, a covered terrace and interior student spaces as well as mirroring similar structural elements found in recent construction on the University’s primary campus in College Station.
