Gilbane Celebrates “Topping-Out” at Texas A&M
The new Campus Hotel and Conference Center is scheduled to open in September
Houston, Texas – June 21, 2017 – Gilbane , a national leader in vertically-integrated real estate development and construction, recently celebrated a major milestone at the Texas A&M Campus Hotel & Conference Center project in College Station, Texas. The topping out ceremony was attended by representatives from the Texas A&M University System, Gilbane, Stonehenge Holdings, and the Huitt-Zollars Team. The event took place on Level 5 of the structure, with a view of Kyle Field. Chancellor John Sharp addressed the attendees and participated in a luncheon for the construction team.
Gilbane through public private partnership delivery is providing oversight on design, development, and construction of the project. Work continues on the eight-story, 250 room hotel and conference center located across from Kyle Field. The signing of a piece of sheetrock in this ceremony symbolizes the progress made toward the goal of the campus having a conference center for prospective employers to come and interview students, a facility to host national conferences, and a place for professors to speak to large groups.
“The conference center and hotel will be a tremendous asset for the Texas A&M community and Gilbane is proud to continue our relationship with Texas A&M University and be a part of delivering this world class project,” says Dan Gilbane, Southwest Division Leader for Gilbane Building Company.
The new hotel and conference center is scheduled to open September 1, 2018.
