Texas A&M University Health Science Center
The Broaddus Companies began our journey into helping owners develop and maintain FM Data through our program management of the Texas A&M Health Science Center in Bryan, Texas starting in 2007. The first phase included the 138,000 GSF Medical Research and Education Building (MREB), the 138,000 GSF Health Professions Education Building (HPEB), the central utility plant (CUP), and extensive site development.
The project also employed the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to comply with project requirements outlined by the Texas A&M University System. Broaddus & Associates went one step further to educate and guide the project client to obtain data (information) that makes BIM an extremely useful tool throughout the life of the facility, not just through design and construction. Broaddus & Associates staff worked with the owner’s facility management staff to determine data specifications needed and integrated that data into the COBie format. This project received the Award of Excellence for Higher Education/Research from Texas Construction Magazine in 2010.
Since that initial engagement with Texas A&M Health Science Center, Broaddus has or is currently managing over $632.7M (in total project costs) worth of projects at Texas A&M Health Science Center, including:
- TAM HSC BIM & FM Specifications
- Medical Research & Education Building (2010)
- Health Professions & Education Building (2010)
- Central Utility Plant (2010)
- Clinical Building 1 (2010)
- Gross Anatomy Lab (2017)
- Medical Research & Education Building II (2019)
