Hall of Languages Renovation

When Texas A&M University in Commerce approached us with this project, they had a problem. Texas Governor Abbott was coming to be part of a ceremony in 90 days to be held in the Hall of Languages. The building needed to be renovated and it had to be completed before the Governor’s visit. Not only was there a tight time frame, but a tight budget too. We’re proud that when they were faced with this challenge and they needed a solution, they called us to help. To meet the difficult project requirements, the Job Order Contracting (JOC) construction delivery method was utilized. This decreased the time required for pre-construction and it assisted with budget constraints by utilizing the cost data from RS Means.

While a full historic restoration would have exceeded the budget, the historic significance of this building necessitated a historically sensitive approach to the renovations. We met the tight budget by preserving the historic elements of the building and protecting the historic fabric for future restoration, while improving the function and amenities of the spaces within the building. These improvements included repairing and refinishing the terrazzo in the public areas, installing carpet tiles in the office areas, plaster repairs, new paint, upgrade of electrical system, new light fixtures, new doors to match the historic doors, and special ordered acoustical panels. With this problem-solving approach, the project was delivered on time and in budget.
