Facilities Programming and Consulting completed the revised Architectural Space Program for the Hilltop Housing Complex. The scope of work includes the demolition of Hornsby and Burleson Halls and construction of a new housing complex on the Hilltop area of the San Marcos Campus.      

Status:  This project is on the Capital Improvements Program (CIP), and the current TPC is approximately $87.4 million based on 836 beds. Design work continues, as do efforts to reduce the TPC.  Barnes Gromatzky Kosarek Architects was selected as the architect and engineer team (A/E) in May 2018. Vaughn Construction will serve as the Construction Manager-at-Risk (CMR). The project is in the Design Development Phase; however, dependent on future enrollment, we will not proceed with construction for approximately a year. The demolition of Hornsby and Burleson halls will begin in early 2019.

Next Milestone:  The next milestone will be completion of the design documents and the project will be put on hold pending future enrollment growth.
