BE&K Building Group recently celebrated the topping-out of Texas A&M University-McAllen’s Higher Education Center in McAllen, Texas. Our team marked this milestone with a traditional topping out ceremony on September 20, 2017. In attendance at the ceremony were representatives from the Texas A&M University System and the City of McAllen. BE&K Building Group was represented by members of its Executive Leadership and the entire onsite project team.

The 65,000 square-foot Higher Education Center will be the first building on the new McAllen campus, an extension of the flagship College Station campus. The center, designed by PBK Architects, will house classrooms, laboratories, an auditorium, and various gathering spaces. Users of this design-build facility include the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences; Engineering; Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences; Science; and Liberal Arts.

The facility is on track to be completed May 2018 and will open to students Fall 2018.
