Palomar Modular Buildings is to provide Texas A&M University – San Antonio with two new modular classroom buildings for the 2017 fall semester. The buildings have been designed specifically for Texas A&M – San Antonio to accommodate the anticipated influx of the student-body population. The two ADA (American with Disabilities Act) compliant buildings will house a combined 17 classrooms, and will include laboratory space and restroom facilities.
Texas A&M University – San Antonio awarded the construction contract to Palomar Modular Buildings in June 2017 with a delivery date that will allow the school to occupy the new buildings for the start of school in August. The majority of the construction is happening off-site at Palomar’s manufacturing facility in DeSoto, Texas. The distinct buildings will then be shipped to the campus for final assembly. Prefabrication plays a major role in allowing the new buildings to be finished on time according to the construction schedule.
Texas A&M University – San Antonio’s new classroom facilities will allow the school to offer additional class scheduling flexibility, as well as providing additional space for campus events when classes are not in session.
