BE&K Building Group recently completed another project, the Engineering Building at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. Home to Tarleton’s School of Engineering, the $54 million facility is the university’s new hub for education, research, and innovation in engineering, engineering technology, construction science, and computer science. The new building brings together programs formerly scattered across the Stephenville campus including civil, electrical, environmental, and newly approved mechanical engineering programs.
BE&K Building Group provided preconstruction and construction services for the 97,000 sf, three-story project. The building provides much needed laboratory, classroom, and administrative space. Heavy-use and high bay labs, classrooms, and offices are housed on the first floor. Innovative classrooms; a robotics lab; a prototyping lab; a fluids and materials testing lab — complete with flume and wind tunnel; computer labs; and offices are located on the upper floors.
“This is an extraordinarily important building, positioning the university as a leader in engineering education and research. It inspires innovation and fosters the kind of hands-on, experiential learning that motivates students to think outside the box.”
— F. Dominic Dottavio, President, Tarleton State University
