Turner Breaks Ground on $41M Texas A&M University at Galveston Project

GALVESTON, TX — Turner Construction Company was awarded a $41 million contract to build an Engineering Classroom and Research Building for Texas A&M University at Galveston in Galveston, Texas. The team, along with design partner Page and local city officials, celebrated the start of work with a groundbreaking ceremony.

The three-story building will house seven departments, providing a new home for engineering students while promoting growth opportunities for study. It will feature administrative offices and conference space, as well as active learning spaces to support engineering programs, research laboratory space for faculty-led research programs, group study collaboration areas, and a technology maker space where students can design and develop physical prototypes for projects.

“We are thrilled to begin work on a building that will improve the education of engineering students at the university,” said Andy Tandon, Vice President and General Manager at Turner Construction Company. “We are looking forward to working with our design partner Page and the Galveston community as we bring this innovative project to life.”

The 54,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed in fall 2025.
