Texas Christian University - Staff Augmentation Services

Broaddus & Associates is providing project management staff augmentation services for Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX. Our professional staff is embedded with the university’s Facilities & Campus Planning Department (FCPD) to assist with the delivery of its ongoing capital improvement program. We provided a capital project director (program manager) and multiple project managers seamlessly integrated into FCPD. Our staff offices with FCPD for the duration of the capital program. Key projects in this $402M+ program include:

Neeley School of Business

This 4-story, 139,000 SF addition includes an auditorium, faculty offices, classrooms, collaboration facilities, student study lounges, food service, and other support spaces. The project included demolition of an existing building, followed by construction of the new addition tying two adjacent existing buildings together. The design and execution of this project had to address the differing second and third floor heights of the adjacent buildings. The result created a fully accessible iconic facility, consolidating the School of Business into a single unified location. The project also included an inviting central plaza with fountain, while still allowing pedestrian traffic through a ground level bypass.

School of Music

The 61,000 SF, 2-story, 700-seat concert hall and classroom building project include large rehearsal spaces for percussion, band, and orchestra students, 12 individual practice rooms, and additional spaces for offices, a green room, conference room and lounge. The Creative Commons landscaping project is also part of this project. This pedestrian plaza provides a social connection with the adjacent Fine Arts Building.

Administration Building/South Core Precinct Development

This 82,000 SF Administration Building project includes re-platting, vacating, and zoning coordination with the City of Fort Worth for the South Core Precinct reconfiguration. The building consolidates the administration and finance functions of the University into a one stop shop. The site is also adjacent to TCU Admissions, and creates a new “front door” to campus along Berry Street. Part of Bellaire Drive North was vacated to vehicular traffic. In its place is a new corridor creating a pedestrian friendly plaza and connector between the east and west campus.

Amon G. Carter Stadium Expansion

This $113M major addition on the stadium’s east side includes 22 private luxury suites and 96 loge boxes with access to a private lounge. The project also adds 1,500 club seats with access to a new club lounge with banquet room capacity to serve approximately 650 occupants. Detailed planning of the sequence of new construction allowed TCU to use the existing stadium for both the 2018 and 2019 football seasons while construction was ongoing.

College of Fine Arts

This 32,000 SF, 2-story instructional facility with large multipurpose and flexible design studio includes 7 labs to support testing and construction for textiles, lighting, apparel, and instruction, as well as site utilities and creation of landscaped pedestrian commons area. This was another consolidation project, providing a centralized location as part of the new “Creative Commons” – grouping the Arts and Music programs around a central plaza.

Worth Hills Residence Halls

This project includes two sophomore housing buildings in the Worth Hills Village student housing development. The buildings offer suite-style units, as well as common areas, study rooms and outdoor spaces to facilitate student engagement. The site, located adjacent to Berry Street, offers a central green space at the edge of the completed Greek Village student housing complex, and overlooks the university sports fields and lake along Pond Drive.

Greek Village Phase 6

This $62M project includes four, 3-story structures designed to house multiple Greek system chapters. Each unit contains resident rooms, Hall Director apartments, common lounge space and meeting rooms to host Chapter events. This was the final phase of six – completing the Greek Village and Commons in quadrant between Bellaire Drive North and Berry Street, opposite the Main Entry to campus at Stadium Drive with Pond Drive as the western boundary.

Kelly Alumni Center

This project is a 15,000 SF, 2-story addition, and renovations to the 11,990 SF existing Alumni Center. The addition contains new office spaces, meeting rooms, and work areas, while reconfiguring existing office spaces into expanded meeting and pre-function spaces.

Football Practice Field

This project includes a state-of-the-art practice facility surface with sand field with subsurface drainage system, similar to the Amon G. Carter Stadium, and the recently completed soccer field.
