Texas A&M Center for Infrastructure Renewal

Energy Architecture is presently working on the first new building designed specifically for the recently announced RELLIS campus for the Texas A&M University System. The Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR), a building for Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), is envisioned as a collaborative and interdisciplinary engineering research facility focusing on all facets of infrastructure research. The facility will incorporate research teams from across the university including, the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI), and College of Engineering.

Research Objectives

The research conducted in the building is intended to make a positive impact on the nation’s infrastructure by researching issues related to improved safety, security, efficiency, performance, longevity, hazard resiliency, and sustainability.  The facility will contain collaborative, multi-use spaces and include shared facilities that support interdisciplinary engineering research teams.

Design Challenges

Initially slated for construction at the Texas A&M Research Park, the building was reassigned for construction on the RELLIS campus and will help to establish design concepts and standards for future development. The Energy Architecture team has worked to meet aggressive scheduling and coordination challenges by working closely with FPC representatives and building users to allow parallel programing and building design to meet the project budget and schedule.  We are delighted to be involved in this important and milestone building project for the Texas A&M University System.
