TAMIU Gets Fresh for Spring with Indoor/Outdoor Updates



There’s nothing like a New Year to freshen things up. While students are away on holiday, Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) will follow an aggressive program focused on indoor and outdoor maintenance and amenities’ addition and improvement.

TAMIU physical updates will include the modernization and updating of the Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library passenger elevators, and the painting of Bob Bullock Hall classrooms and staircases in the Killam Library, Dr. Billy F. Cowart Hall, Dr. F. M. Canseco Hall and the Rec Center. A new roof is being completed for the Kinesiology Convocation Building and the addition of two new 1000-ton centrifugal chillers will improve AC efficiency and delivery across campus.

Exterior changes range from sidewalk concrete repairs, the upgrading of popular exterior seating and lounge spaces and refresh of landscaped spaces around the Library, Bullock and Cowart Halls, to the installation of new decorative lighting along the North South Paseo through the Lamar Bruni Vergara Memorial Garden.  The completion of an East West Paseo will further enhance pedestrian experience.

Other improvements underscore TAMIU’s commitment to improving indoor amenities like the installation of new chairs in Lamar Bruni Vergara Science Center Labs, the creation of a new student study space in the north atrium of the Senator Judith Zaffirini Student Success Center, and the creation and installation of new mobile support stations in its south atrium.

Also this Spring 2023, TAMIU will embark on the second phase of its campus-wide Energy Services Conservation Project.
