​​LUBBOCK - The massive and continual construction/renovation projects at Texas Tech improve upon and maintain the state-of-the-art facilities of its 90-year-old campus.

Michael Molina, Vice Chancellor of Facilities Planning and Construction, said within the last six years, Tech has either completed or is currently working on around $1.1 billion of construction and design.

The $15 million expansion to the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration will add more than 40,000 sf to its existing area. The groundbreaking ceremony for the project happened in July 2015.

Just south of the College of Business, the new Honors residence hall will begin construction in March 2016. The 83,000-sf building will feature a pod-living layout with 305 beds and is set to be completed by August 2017.

In terms of athletic upgrades, $48 million has been dedicated for the construction of the Sports Performance Center. This complex will replace the Athletic Training Center, also known as The Bubble. The facility will be completed in about a year and a half. The Bubble has been deflated and construction will begin soon.

The new System Office building at the intersection of Texas Tech Pkwy. and the Marsha Sharp Fwy. is a $27.5 million project for the Tech University System. The three-story building will be 80,000 sf, consisting of support spaces, infrastructure, landscaping, surface parking and office space for all of the System offices.

The major renovation project on campus is the Maddox Engineering Research Center. Located near Memorial Circle at the entrance to the Engineering Key, this research facility will occupy the former Media and Communication building. This $30 million project is slated to be completed by August and should be fully operational by September of this year.
