Texas Christian University first engaged HPM at the beginning of what was expected to be a spike in on-campus construction, bringing HPM in as an owner’s representative to supplement TCU’s own staff. Years later, the spike hasn’t abated, and building after building on campus bears HPM’s fingerprints.
The Harris College of Nursing included classrooms with writable walls, faculty offices and simulation labs with robotic patients and was accompanied by renovations to the attached Bass Building to match the new construction. Renovating the existing basketball coliseum into the 6,860-seat Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena involved adding and renovating locker rooms, adding office spaces and conference rooms, lowering the arena’s entire playing surface by five feet and adding courtside seating. Lupton Baseball Stadium got indoor batting cages, an artificial practice field and a new bullpen, along with new locker rooms and training space, with construction coordinated around regular and post-season play.
TCU’s first parking structure, the Frog Alley Parking Garage, brought four stories and 984 spaces of parking for TCU students and football fans — and the Worth Hills Parking Garage added six stories and 1,200 more spaces. The Greek Village brings 781 beds’ worth of housing to sororities and fraternities in Worth Hills. Even buildings that HPM wasn’t responsible for, like the Burnett Library, have received facelifts to match the high quality and elegant design of the new HPM-guided construction.
